CGTMSE (Credit Guarantee Funds Trust for Micro and Small Enterprises)

Here, the MSME loan sanctioned by the Member Lending Institution (MLI) is backed by the scheme which provides the guarantee cover for a large portion of the loan amount. Under CGTMSE scheme, both new and existing medium, small, and micro enterprises, including service enterprises are eligible for a maximum credit cap of Rs. 2 crore.
