Smart ways to use MSME / SME loans
The micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) sector is one of the biggest providers of employment and industrial output in the country. As much as 45% of industrial production and 40% of India’s exports comes from the MSME sector. Hence, the need for business finance is also greater in this sector. Lack of timely finance is one of the biggest bottlenecks for MSME growth in India. However, things are changing with non-banking financial companies like Lendingkart emerging as an alternative to traditional banks.
Today, MSME / SMEs can avail quick business finance up to ₹ 1 Crore within 3 days from Lendingkart.
Here are 5 smart ways you can utilize the funds of an MSME / SME loan.

As many as 31% of the businesses applying for a small business loan use the funds to purchase inventory. Utilize the funds from your MSME loan to secure your inventory supply chain. Manage seasonal dips, replenish existing stock or buy new product samples for sale with an inventory loan for MSMEs.
Purchasing Plant & Machinery

Consolidate your business debt
One of the best advantages of short-term MSME loans is that they allow you to consolidate smaller debts and make them a single EMI. This not only reduces the strain on your monthly budget but also helps in aligning your debt repayment with your invoicing schedule. Moreover, by consolidating business debt, you may be able to reduce the amount that you are currently paying for sundry debts as now you have the option to expand the repayment schedule up to 12 months.
Invest in Marketing
Marketing helps in growing your business by expanding its outreach. There are two things that can be accomplished with an effective marketing strategy. One, reinforcing the trust and loyalty of existing customers in your brand. Two, acquiring new customers in existing or new markets. However, marketing is a costly affair and a comprehensive online and offline marketing campaign requires investment. An MSME / SME loan fund can give you the financial backing for running such a campaign.
Calculating an MSME / SME Loan EMI
MSME / SME Loans EMI
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 MSME / SME Loans EMI?
The MSME / SME Loans 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.
What to do and not to do when applying for an MSME loan online
Since the lending market operates on caution and precaution, here are some of the things that you should do and not do when applying for an MSME loan. These steps can help in improving the probability of getting a loan for your business and reduce the risk of rejection.
- Check your credit score before moving an application for MSME or SME loan. Most lenders rely on credit rating for preliminary loan approvals.
- Get your documentation in order before starting the loan application process. For Lendingkart MSME loans, make sure that you have all the required documents in digital format as we do not accept physical copies at the time of application.
- Prepare a business plan that specifies how you intend to use the loan funds and how much time it might take to generate positive returns from the investment. Every lender may not ask for it but it is good to have a business plan ready to assuage a lender’s concerns.
- Assess your MSME loan requirements before applying. Try not to overestimate or underestimate your loan requirements as in both cases you will end up wasting time and money.
- Do not apply with multiple lenders as it will reduce your credit score by several points. It also shows financial desperation on your part, which might put off potential lenders.
- Do not delay your repayments for existing debts even if you are taking the MSME loan for debt consolidation. It has a negative impact on your credit score and financial goodwill.
- Do not go for lenders who charge you an upfront fee. There are many fraudulent lenders in the online space who may ask for huge fees for approving your MSME loan application. A genuine lender like Lendingkart Finance will never ask you for an upfront fee and only charges a percentage upon disbursal of the loan.
