Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Finance in India – A research study

IFC, a member of the World Bank Group, has released a new study that finds financial institutions meet only one-fourth of the financing demand of micro, small and medium enterprises in India, noting that a sizeable part of this unfulfilled opportunity is viable.

The study estimates the overall finance shortfall for micro, small and medium enterprises to be over $ 400 billion. Formal sources are able to channel only $ 140 billion. Banks can address the sector’s debt and equity financing requirement of over $ 70 billion, it estimates.
