According to a recent survey 83% of Indians would like to start their own micro, small or medium businesses depending on their financial strength but not every good idea is funded well. These small business entrepreneurs who have a lot of potential and revolutionary ideas which can do good to our country and must be encouraged through funds.

Business Loans in 59 Minutes for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME)


Small Business Loan


This government loan scheme introduced by the government is for already existing small businesses. They lend money for small businesses to carry out their everyday operations. The minimum and maximum amount loaned is from Rs. 10 Lakh to Rs. 1 Crore. The minimum business loan rate of interest offered is 8% but it may vary according to the applicant’s credit score. There is no collateral considered for this loan also known as an unsecured business loan.


The benefit of this Government loan scheme for small businesses  in India is that it gives an approval or disapproves the loan within 59 minutes rather than spending 30 days on the same loan making it much faster and the loan is received in 7 to 8 days if it is approved. 


Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY)

There are three types of loans in PMMY, namely :-


The first category which is known as Shishu loans are for extremely small business units and can loan you a sum of money upto Rs 50,000. The second category is known as kishore loans which are for slightly bigger units and lends above Rs 50,000 but upto Rs 5 lakh. The third category known as Taru covers loans above Rs 5 lakh and upto Rs 10 lakh for units requiring loans bigger than the category of Shishu and Kishore loans.


MUDRA is a refinancing Institution that means it finances one loan by taking a loan from someone else. MUDRA does not lend directly to micro business owners. It is beneficial for small business owners as there is comparatively less and doesn’t require the borrower to keep any property or collateral for security. You don’t have to go to the bank to withdraw cash each time as there is a MUDRA debit card provided giving an easier access to funds.


Mudra loans under Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) can be availed from any nearby branch office of a bank, NBFC, MFIs etc. Borrowers may file an online application for MUDRA loans on Udyamimitra portal.
