Arth, a social impact startup is working with a vision to rethink the way micro-entrepreneurs in rural India get financial assistance. The startup delivers credit for small and micro-entrepreneurs and provides livelihood welfare services with an emphasis on financing rural women micro-entrepreneurs and micro-merchants.

Founded in 2015 by Shweta Apremeya, the Delhi-based endeavor came up with a credit underwriting tool, which is built on large, existing micro-enterprises’ data, including socio-economic, geographical, and demographics parameters.
