New Delhi: Small Industries Development Bank of India (Sidbi), the principal financial institution engaged in the promotion, financing, and development of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSME) has partnered with M1xchange as the financier to bring liquidity to MSMEs at competitive interest rates..

“M1xchange offers early liquidity to MSMEs within 24 hours through its online bidding platform through end-to-end digital process. This is a highly effective and efficient solution for addressing the issue of delayed payment of MSMEs," the company said in a statement.

M1xchange is one of three TReDS platforms. TReDS is regulated by RBI that enables discounting of bills of Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) resulting in improvement of cash flow and liquidity and overall improvement in functioning of MSMEs.

The MSME sector accounts for the major share in the number of enterprises in India. This sector is also a major employment provider next only to agriculture and therefore, growth of this sector assumes greater importance.

“The cost of funding outside the banking system is very high for MSMEs. With this unique proposition offered by M1xchange TReDS, MSME enterprises will be able to utilise TReDS for discounting of receivables from their corporate buyers in which multiple financial institutions like SIDBI can play a big role. Corporate buyers in turn will be able to procure at better prices. M1xchange is privileged to welcome SIDBI for coming onboard" said Sundeep Mohindru, MD & CEO -M1xchange.

“TReDS have become an effective tool for prompt realization of MSME’s receivables and it provides for an effective solution to their working capital requirements. We expect that more and more Buyers will join and use TReDS platforms for effecting payments to their MSME suppliers and contribute to resolving the issue of delays in payment of MSME receivables to a larger extent. SIDBI being an apex institution for promotion & development of MSMEs is fully committed towards increasing the flow of credit to MSMEs for their growth" said Sivasubramanian Ramann, CMD, SIDBI.

Till date M1xchange facilitated bill discounting of more than 37,000 crores to over 14,000 MSME suppliers spread across 1,400 towns across the country at competitive rate of interest.

TReDS enables the financial inclusion of MSMEs on a high scale, digitally, and with a positive social impact. This financing is without any collateral security and without recourse to MSMEs. The platform looks forward to increase its footprints in digital factoring by 25 percent to 30 percent in the current fiscal alone and this partnership with SIDBI gives a fillip to it.
