There is urgent need for making available timely, affordable alternative sources of financing and up-skilling their entrepreneurial skills. BillMart jointly with MSME EPC aim to handhold the MSMEs & provide seamless experience in raising short-term working capital, unlocking trade receivables, freeing cash flow through digital ecosystem.
