Entrepreneurs, such as India’s seamstresses, often struggle to grow their businesses because of barriers to trading across regional and state borders.
Expanding a small business beyond local regions is difficult, and many seamstresses don’t have the tools or resources they need to reach new markets.
With a lack of rural banking services, accessing micro loans can be time consuming, and many are forced to turn to unregulated local lenders who charge extortionate interest rates.
These entrepreneurs are often squeezed by retailers to reduce margins and sell below cost. Meanwhile, many trade in cash, creating concerns over security.
