India’s economy is one of the fastest-growing economies in the world and MSMEs are the growth engine that fuels the development of the national economy.
As per the information received from Central Statistics Office, Ministry of Statistics & PI, the Share of MSME Gross Value Added (GVA) in All India Gross Domestic Product at current prices (2011-12) for the year 2018-19 and 2019-20 were 30.5% and 30.0% respectively.
It holds around 1/3rd of the Indian GDP.
From the viewpoint of Mr. Anurag Rastogi, head of our product department, we will cover in this blog post the challenges posed by MSMEs, as well as how Hylobiz supports enterprises with their four pillars of business that is cash all commerce, compliance, and credit.
Role of MSMEs
Micro, small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of the country’s economy. MSMEs have contributed significantly to employment over the past six decades and are essential to exports. Through their creativity and business, Micro, small and medium-sized has been playing a key role in the economy’s development by expanding their sphere of influence across all economic sectors.
While MSMEs businesses greatly contribute to growth, they nonetheless encounter challenges in reaching their goals. Let’s look at these barriers and their remedies.
Challenges faced by MSMEs
- Lack of technology:
Technology is the key to success for any business. MSMEs are either not exposed to or do not have enough funds to use the latest technologies that can make their business processes easier. This makes it difficult for them to compete with large corporations that can afford these technologies.
- Working Capital efficiency:
Another issue MSMEs encounter is managing working capital. There will be ups and downs in business, just like in life, therefore it’s critical for MSME to have a plan for both. Micro, small and medium-sized may struggle to make payments on time and will have difficulties running its business if their finances are not in order.
- Lack of business health visibility:
Managing operational, financial, and managerial activities is necessary for assessing the health of a business. This needs careful planning, carrying out, and monitoring. Because of inadequate teams, poor planning, bad execution, and poor management, many businesses struggle to execute these many responsibilities.
- Lack of trade Automation:
Automation undoubtedly enhances productivity, product quality, and safety, but MSMEs lack the resources or opportunities to automate their operations
- Access to credit:
MSMEs find it challenging to obtain financing because often they lack any form of collateral and banks may find it challenging to take risks in their business.
Difficulty in Managing Compliance:
The government mandates’ rules are constantly changing, and Micro, small, and medium enterprises struggle to comply with them because they lack the knowledge and resources necessary.
So who can help MSMEs with such challenges?
