The Mudra loan scheme under the Pradhan Mantri Mudra Yojana (PMMY) has been a god-send to all of the micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in India. The scheme has single-handedly been able to alleviate one of the major difficulties faced by small enterprises in the country - lack of proper access to funding. 


Under the scheme, both new and existing enterprises can apply for loans up to ₹10 lakhs. That’s not all. Even proprietors and individuals looking to purchase a vehicle for commercial purposes can also avail this loan scheme. If you’re among the intended beneficiaries of this scheme and would like to apply for a Mudra loan, here’s how you can do it.
