In order to assists such SMEs and small merchants to fulfil their working capital requirements, ArthImpact has launched a Credit Product namely ‘HappyLoan’.

One of the greatest advantages of availing Happyloan is that there are no Penal Charges for Delayed or Prepayment. The loan size starts from Rupees 2000 and extend up to Rupees 1,00,000. The loan tenure is very flexible e.g. one can avail the loan even for a period of one month to support his immediate loan requirements.
There are over 600 million people in India with no access to the mainstream Banking facilities. Happyloan will serve them to the fullest. At present, Happyloan is self-funded and exploring various credit lines from the industry.
