Niyogin Fintech: Designing Growth for MSMEs through Top-notch Fintech Solutions

  Tashwinder Singh,     CEO & MD

The Indian entrepreneurial landscape is consistently expanding and is forming the backbone of the Indian economy. The MSME sector is one of the greatest contributors contributing 27 percent to the country’s national GDP, and providing employment opportunities to a large portion of the population. Hence, it is imperative to ensure that efforts are made to boost the growth of the MSME sector. To further bolster the considerable potential in MSMEs and improve their ability to access financial solutions, fintech has the power to reach deep within India to target this massive segment. Amit Rajpal and Gaurav Patankar (Founders of Niyogin Fintech) understood this need and therefore led an initiative to provide a platform that could support and enhance the potential of small businesses across domains; they together established Niyogin Fintech.

Niyogin aims to substantially impact the lives of MSMEs by giving them solutions that leverage the power of technology and the confidence of an integrated network of partners. With a technology-first approach, the company is offering small businesses a holistic platform embracing the entire rural sector to develop an urban MSME landscape providing financial inclusion, credit, investments, and SAAS services on the foundation of a unique partner-led physical distribution network.
