Working Capital Loan types
These are of two types: secured & unsecured. Secured loans require an asset as a collateral in lieu of the funds loaned to your business. However, unsecured loans rely on the financial health of your business for sanctioning the loan amount. Here’s a list of six most common types of working capital loans for SMEs.
Bank Overdraft / Credit Line:
This is a pre-approved withdrawal limit which a bank or financial institution gives you on your current account. Prerequisites include a long working relationship, good credit score, and a reasonable loan amount. Interest is only paid on the amount withdrawn, even if the sanctioned limit is higher. However, interest rates are generally 1 to 2 percent higher than the prime rate of the lending institution.
Equity funded working capital loans are acquired through personal resources or investors, such as investment from friends or family. These working capital loans are mostly taken by start-ups and businesses with a less than ideal credit score.
These are one of the most popular sources of working capital finance for Indian SMEs. These are normal working capital loans, granted at a fixed interest rate with a short repayment period of up to one year. Generally, these are secured loans that may also have other policy requirement such as revenue/sales targets for you to follow.
Loan on Accounts Receivables
Granted against confirmed sales order value, this kind of debt is ideal for your business if you have a reliable customer base as there is always a risk of invoice defaults. In lieu, financial institutions are also hesitant to provide these working capital loans to new businesses.
Factoring / Advances
Like an accounts receivable loan, this loan is given against future credit card receipts instead of confirmed sales. However, this type of debt is only suitable for a business that accepts credit card payments.
A trade creditor working capital loan is provided by a current or new supplier. This facility is generally offered on placing bulk orders. However, trade creditors usually have strict policy parameters to be followed by the borrower.
Do’s and don’t’s
A working capital loan is a debt which you will have to eventually pay off. So, it is important that you consider your business needs seriously before committing to it. Here are some things you should consider before applying for one:
Have you explored all other options for managing your working capital?
While working capital finance is one of the best ways to manage your operational requirements, there are several other measures you can take to streamline your cash flow. For example, identifying and cutting back unnecessary expenses, optimizing your invoice cycle, reducing stock of slow-moving inventory items, etc. So, before going for a loan make sure you have tried every measure to streamline your finances.
How do you intend to use the loan money?
If you do not have a plan to utilize the funds, you might end up putting your business in a poor financial situation. Working capital loans are not meant for financing expansions and long-term assets. Make sure you carefully consider the usage of your working capital loan before applying for one.
Does it benefit your business?
A healthy business with streamlined supply chain and operations will no doubt benefit from a working capital loan. But if you are a relatively new business, you should also know about the ultimate advantages of taking a working capital loan along with its usage. This includes having the ability to service the loan. If your business needs a working capital infusion but your current revenues are not enough for EMI payments, you should consider alternate means of stabilizing before applying for the loan.

Ominous clouds of financial constraints looming over MSMEs
Industrial units, particularly MSMEs across Gujarat that do not have large cash reserves, are facing problems. Manufacturers are either downsizing production or cutting operational hours. Higher coal and gas costs are also making manufacturers shell out more.
Jaimin Shah, co-chairman, Assocham Gujarat State Council, informed:
- Cash flow cycles for MSMEs are stretched due to stuck and delayed payments.
- In most cases, payment is received by manufacturers after shipments reach their destination.
- Thus, payments due to the lack of shipping containers are delayed by an additional 45-60 days.
MSMEs are reeling from a shortage of working capital. Higher input costs on raw materials across Gujarat create a shortage of raw materials.
- Plastic packaging manufacturing units have been running at around 65% capacity.
- Production of dyes and chemicals is being hampered due to skyrocketing raw material prices.
- The need for working capital has increased due to the rise in the price of steel and non-ferrous metals.
- At least 20% of foundries are yet to resume after Diwali.
- Textile processors have cut working hours due to raw material prices shooting through the roof.

Extension of the Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme to the Hospitality Sector
The extension of the Emergency Credit Line Guarantee Scheme (ECLGS) to the Hospitality Sector was a much-needed reprieve for the industry that has been going through a grind since the start of Covid in 2020. The Hospitality Sector has suffered a lot in the last year and a half with huge losses leading to the shutdown of some quite famous hotels. Around 40% of revenue and 5 Crore jobs have been lost by the hospitality industry and thus managing to run a hotel became a tougher job overnight with the financial pressure and reduced income.
The hospitality industry is one of the heavily taxed sectors with taxes at state as well as national levels and a lot of money being spent on getting permits and licenses. The decision to provide the ECLGS to this sector is a very good one as the tourism and hospitality sector needs money to be able to stand again and this funding source might just help the sector which is known to adjust and evolve despite calamities, thanks to their cost-efficient structures.
