India has a rich culture and heritage renowned all over the world. The creative manufacturing sector with handicrafts and handloom products of India are quite in demand domestically as well as internationally. However, the MSME sector in India, especially that of the handloom and handicraft industry, faces various challenges in promoting themselves on a national or global platform.
In fact, according to research conducted by Google and KPMG, out of the 51 million small and medium enterprises in India, 68% are not connected to the internet. With the marketplace turning digital, this is a major impediment to the development of the MSME market in India. This is where Lal10 comes into the picture.
