India is home to a vast number of small and medium businesses (SMBs), exceeding 30 million in count. These businesses have an average spending potential of $4.5K annually on office infrastructure. However, the current scenario sees many of these SMBs operating from subpar locations such as basements, residentially zoned areas, and other unsuitable environments.
Recognizing this gap and the potential for addressing the needs of these SMBs, our company aims to provide a solution that meets their requirements effectively. We understand that SMBs require affordable and accessible office spaces that offer high-quality facilities to support their operations. By offering coworking spaces designed with Indian SMBs in mind, we can bridge this gap and provide a conducive environment for their growth and success.

Saswat Finance is dedicated to cattle finance, serving the needs of small and marginal farmers who have limited access to lending and agri-inputs. With a mission to improve rural livelihoods, the company offers a tech-driven, hi-touch, low-cost platform that is easily accessible to smallholder farmers, providing them with advisory services, extensive networks, and in-house solutions to meet their financial and informational needs.
The goal is to double farmers’ income in 4-5 years through the flow of credit for income-producing assets. By focusing on cattle finance and leveraging technology, the startup aims to address the challenges faced by smallholder farmers, unlocking their potential and contributing to their economic empowerment.
The potential for rural lending in India is massive, with an estimated 140 million farmer households currently untapped by lending institutions and an estimated market size of $500 billion. Despite this vast potential, access to formal credit remains limited for many smallholder farmers, with informal credit available at high-interest rates of 3-4% per month.
Saswat Finance aims to address this challenge by providing lending, agri-inputs, and advisory services to small farmers, with a particular focus on the dairy industry. With 75% of dairy animals bred by small farmers, the opportunity to support this sector and increase their income is significant.
The Reserve Bank of India’s $240 billion target for banks to lend to small and marginal farmers further highlights the importance of expanding financial services in rural areas. By tapping into this underserved market, financial institutions can not only drive growth but also contribute to improving the livelihoods of millions of rural households.
