Among the many common likings between Neha, Dipti, and me, bottle painting and jewellery making topped the list. In college, this hobby became a means to earn some pocket money as we got many orders from our fellow students along with making good profits during college fests. Eventually, it struck upon us to turn our hobby into a business venture, and there has been no looking back since then. Agreed, there have been ups and downs, but three of us have grown together as business partners. We gathered knowledge about the various factors involved in starting a business such as business loans, interest rates, lenders, working capital, etc. eventually leading us to Tata Capital.

Finance is the backbone of any business – big or small, start-up or established, and I can vouch that Tata Capital understands this fact very well. Else, why would they make availing a business loan so easy? Yes, in just three simple steps, you can avail funds to launch your business:
