"Small and medium-sized merchants were being introduced through the Mudra Loans. The Prime Minister-led union government is aiming to grow as $ 5 trillion economies, in this way, we are helping small traders by providing them with a credit to grow their businesses. All the queries will be addressed at the stalls that are set up here," he added.

This Customer Outreach Initiative is underway to fulfil the goal of financial inclusion, including the promotion of digital payments.
