Kolkata : Kuldeep Maiti, MD & CEO, VFS Capital Ltd, a microfinance institution, said, ‘We commend the Hon’ble Finance Minister for presenting a budget focused on ‘Vikasit Bharat,’ with a prime emphasis on the welfare of the poor, women, youth, and farmers. In today’s interim budget, the minister highlighted the substantial growth in women entrepreneurship over the past decade, allocating 30 crore MUDRA Yojana loans to empower women entrepreneurs.

This expanded scope will bring more women within the purview of the scheme, positively impacting their economic autonomy.
Furthermore, the government’s commitment to making the eastern region a potent driver of India’s growth is noteworthy. We welcome this move as it holds the promise of unlocking new opportunities for growth and development in the Eastern region, benefiting its residents.
