Sharmaji ka small business chalta hai ekdum tanatan , kaise?
Yes, this question is asked by all his friends and well-wishers; especially within his business circle – the neighboring shopkeepers, suppliers, and many others. Everyone wonders: First he got his small business running great and now his business accounting is perfect too, how come? Who else, but only Sharmaji can shed some light on the secret behind his successful business and small business accounting.
As you are aware, Sharmaji now runs a very profitable kirana store. Yet early on just a year back, while running his small business, Sharmaji faced many problems; one of which was the maintenance of his small business’ accounts. Like his father and grandfather, he too had kept a traditional bahi khata, in which he or one of his assistants would note down the shop’s daily transactions or business accounting. Whenever Sharmaji sat down to list his small business accounts at the end of each month, something or the other would bother him in accounting - either a wrong entry, an incorrect name, missing details or payments forgotten to be added! Book-keeping and accounting of his small business was not only troublesome and tiresome but also filled with doubts. Once, he caught one of his assistants cheating, altering records to make some money on sly. Another time, his small son spilled his Pepsi on his Khatabook! Then to top it, whenever Sharmaji approached banks for small business loans, his application got rejected. Reason: Unverifiable financial records and no proper business accounting.
No banker was willing to lend him money because his small business accounting details could not be supported by any verifiable documents or data. Banks and formal financial institutions do not trust small business on account of poor bookkeeping as their financial records cannot be verified. Hence, most small business approach Local money lenders for short term loans but at very high interest rates. Sharmaji had seen many small businesses getting closed due to absence of affordable financial support. All these businesses required was just having verifiable financial data. Facing loan rejections, paying high interest rates and seeing money losses regularly, proved too much for Sharmaji.
Driving away those painful thoughts, Sharmaji then fondly recalls how one fine day he took his friend’s advice which totally changed the fate of his small business; through a working capital loan from Bridge2Cpital. He always hoped the same kind of help would improve his accounting too. Curious, we asked what his friend had suggested. Simple, he said: Go digital with Bridge2Capital.
Bridge2Capital? Yes, says Sharmaji nodding happily. Proudly, he shows us his mobile app from the fintech company which helped his small business become profitable. How exactly Bridge2Capital helps small businesses, you can read my other story, says Sharmaji.
But right now, he is more concerned about solving his accounting problem! Thoughts of ‘accounting’, ‘accounting’, ‘accounting,’ cluttered his mind... You should see him while calculating his small business accounts. Seeing his headaches, we get one! We do hope Bridge2Capital helps to solve his problem. So, on an optimistic note, Sharmaji calls Bridge2Capital’s helpline number to see if they could help solve his small business accounting issue. Just a call and Sharmaji’s accounting problems got resolved.
Guess, the universe heard his prayers; because a week later we found Sharmaji smiling broadly and he even treated us to chai, samosas and jalebis!
