MUDRA Loans were launched by our honorable Prime Minister under Pradhan Mantri MUDRA Yojana (PMMY) on April 8, 2015, for providing loans up to 10 lakh to the non-corporate, non-farm small/micro enterprises. MUDRA stands for Micro-Units Development and Refinance Agency. Under this scheme, borrowers can avail business loans ranging from Rs.50,000 to Rs.10 lakh. These loans are given by Commercial Banks, RRBs, Small Finance Banks, MFIs, and NBFCs. The borrower can lead to any of the lending institutions mentioned above or can apply online through this portal “www.udyamimitra.in”. Under this scheme, MUDRA has been divided under three products called as ‘Shishu’, ‘Kishore’ and ‘Tarun’ to distinguish among the various stages of growth/development and funding requirements of the beneficiary micro unit/entrepreneur and also to provide a reference point for the next phase of graduation/growth.
