     Focus: MicroSmallandMediumEnterprises 

     Proprietorship business –  10 K to 1 M USD Loans 
                 At the Low end of Goods and Service Tax or NOT yet in GST
                 Exports - Nuetracueticals, Textiles, Food. Imports – Electronics, Chemicals, Raw Material
                 Needs access to formal finance

    Specific painpoints and Problem Statement

                Working capital gaps and “Export/ Import” Credits. They produce BLs for loans. 
                Input Tax Credit Receivables, and Export Duty subsidies eventually arrive but puts lot of short-term 
                cash flow deficit
                Most of these businesses are operations-oriented and current options for them are very high in 
                interest rates.
                Decentralized solutions are emerging, but they have difficulties in verification due to distance and
                jurisdictions and need reliable oracles
