Indian SMEs and MSMEs are the backbone of the economy. Contributing to GDP, exports, and employment, they play an important role in the economy. Until the last few years, however, financial institutions underserved SMEs, which hampered their growth. But nowadays the Digital Lending The Game-Changer For SME Financing. The lack of ease in the transaction was one of the prime difficulties faced by SMEs until the last decade. But now the scenario has changed. For rural and urban SMEs, banking has become much easier and faster. The Indian government’s great support for SMEs is helping to bridge the gap and create a whole new image for SMEs. The Indian government prefers electronic payments over hard cash.

Several government-funded loan schemes operate only through online transactions. To upgrade cash transactions to online transactions, the government runs schemes like CGTMSE, MUDRA, and Stand Up India.

These credit cards transfer the loan amount directly to the beneficiary’s bank account, which indirectly encourages online shopping. In 2017, the government will launch TReDS to strengthen the online transaction system. It is an electronic platform for MSMEs. MSMEs can use this platform to trade receivables and discount bills with large corporations.

Digital lending is expanding its horizons. With digital lending, SMEs were able to solve many of the financing problems they were facing. Adoption of the digital transformation to automate the lending process reduced the time & effort in all the operational processes of lending & lending decisions. And step forward, the inclusion of AI in the lending decision process reduces the fraud risks. Digital transformation technologies are taking digital lending to the next level.
