India is witnessing a phenomenal growth in its small and medium enterprise sector. The MSME sector contributes over 45% of our industrial output, forming 40% of the GDP output. A part of this success story is being written by the country’s women entrepreneurs. Traditionally, women entrepreneurs have found it hard to secure business finance due to a number of social stigmas. However, the recent evolution in business finance and the emergence of FinTech platforms has made it easier for women entrepreneurs to get business loans. Today, business loans for women are also enabling self-employment in rural and urban India.

Calculating EMI for Your Business Loan

Business Loan EMI explained

Equated Monthly Instalments (EMIs) break down a loan into easily repayable financial units. Each unit contains a component of the principal amount and the accrued interest. Flexible EMI schedules offered by lenders like Lendingkart Finance help you in one of the two ways. Either you can repay your loan with ease by breaking it down in small monthly instalments. Or, you can speed up the repayment of your financial debt by opting for bi-weekly instalments, halving the repayment cycle. You can also avail refinance for the previously approved loan amount with Lendingkart’s auto-renewal option.

How to Calculate Business Loans for Women EMI?

The Business Loans for Women EMI calculation is done on the basis of a simple formula i.e.

E = P x r x (1+r)n/(1+r)n-1


‘E’ is the EMI

‘P’ represents the loan amount

‘r’ stands for the interest rate offered on a monthly basis

‘n’ is the duration of the loan

Our MSME / SME loan EMI calculator is a digital version of this formula, that allows you to calculate EMI amount through a web interface. The loan EMI calculator can help you understand the breakdown of interest and principal loan amount, thus, allowing you to decide the layout of your cash resource planning.

Problems Faced by Women Entrepreneurs in India

  1. Social stigma:

    The patriarchal setup of the Indian society puts enterprising women at a disadvantage by raising questions about their ability and competitiveness. While Indian women have broken these stigmas time and again, society is yet to witness a comprehensive transformation of mindset when it comes to promoting women equality in social, economic and political life.

  2. Aggressive behaviour of peers:

    The theme of bias against women is not limited to society, but also extends into the financial sphere, where women entrepreneurs are often patronized by their peers. Often times such aggressive and assertive behaviour can be detrimental for a woman’s enterprising spirit and business vision.

  3. Networking:

    Women entrepreneurs are such an isolated breed at the moment that it becomes difficult for them to join business networks, notwithstanding the aforementioned disadvantages of working in a male-dominated environment.

  4. Personal priorities:

    Quite often, an enterprising woman is also responsible for managing the household. This puts her at a disadvantage in comparison to male entrepreneurs when it comes to devoting time to business development.

  5. Business mindset:

    Given the sheltered way in which most Indian women are brought up, it takes time for them to become a shrewd business operator. Sometimes, a stakeholder or competitor may take undue advantage of a woman entrepreneur’s trusting nature.

  6. Safety and security:

    A major problem faced by most women entrepreneurs in India is that of personal safety and security. Their work may involve odd working hours and frequent travelling to new places, which always warrants caution.

  5. The experience gained by expanding your enterprise also brings about shrewdness and resourcefulness as you seek to maximize the gains from a business loan or investment.
  6. Finally, business finance also enables you to secure a better, safer work environment for yourself and your women employees. Thus, contributing to overall women safety and establishing your business as a shining beacon of inspiration for fellow women entrepreneurs.
