A lot of young MSME entrepreneurs in India might not have the opportunity to pursue higher education degrees, but they are just as smart and savvy as their academically trained counterparts. It’s not unheard of for such entrepreneurs to have a breakout success with their business with the hard work and new-age, tech-enabled capabilities that they bring to the table. However, even if they are able to figure out a lucrative industry and start a business from scratch, they are often in dire need of financing support to actualize the plans they make.

By having ready access to funding, business owners can seize market opportunities at the right time without compromising the cash flow of their business. This allows them to have a competitive edge and capitalize on their unique capabilities to get ahead.

Introduction: Shree Packaging

Mohan Ramchandra Mali was born into a farming family in a small village in Shiroli. When he had to give up on his education after high school because of financial constraints, he realized that he would have to forge his own path to success. He realized that entrepreneurship was the right path for him to pursue.

When Mohan decided to start his own business, he immediately got to work researching what the profitable idea would be. He saw that the packaging industry in the country was growing very rapidly to keep up with rising demand, as all products needed high-quality packaging before they hit the market, if they were to succeed. He settled on the industry, and in 2013, he started his packaging manufacturing company in Kolhapur, Maharashtra.

Problem Statement

Things were going well for Mohan, but he wanted to grow his business much bigger. Given the potential that the sector held, he wanted to boost the production capacity of his unity, and add to its reach. However, he didn’t have the wherewithal to fund this expansion out of pocket.

Many small business entrepreneurs in India find themselves at this juncture and go looking for financing options, only to end up empty handed. Fortunately, in the case of Mohan’s business, things turned out differently.

Solution Offered by Kinara Capital

One of Mohan’s friends recommended Kinara Capital’s collateral-free loans to finance his plans, and he seized the opportunity. He met a Kinara executive and was soon issued his first loan, which he invested in his business, adding machinery and manpower.

While he was still repaying it, Mohan approached Kinara again and received a series of additional loans to finance his various expansion plans. The growth he experienced following this capital infusion was exponential!
