Through TReDS, MSMEs get access to collateral free, without recourse working capital against invoices within 24 hours at the lowest rate through its online bidding platform.

Sundeep Mohindru, Promoter & Director, M1xchange said, “We are extremely grateful to have this opportunity to collaborate with the Government of Andhra Pradesh on this momentous occasion of MSME Day. This MoU is a pivotal step towards empowering the MSME sector in Andhra Pradesh by streamlining access to working capital through TReDS.

Together, we are committed to reform the financial landscape for MSMEs in Andhra Pradesh.”

As of date, M1xchange has facilitated INR 1,00,000 crores worth of invoice discounting. This amounts to over 2.5 million invoices. The company is eyeing INR 72,000 crore in throughput value (total value of invoices processed) by March 2025, higher than INR 43,300 crore in FY24.

The company has recently expanded the scope of TReDS with, ‘M1xchange Small-Small,’ a streamlined approach to cash-flow-based financing for small MSME sellers on TReDS.

Additionally, M1xchange has also signed up MOUs with multiple state governments including Maharashtra, Haryana, Goa, Madhya Pradesh and Tamil Nadu to offer liquidity to the state’s MSMEs while ensuring timely payments at a competitive rate. The success of M1xchange is driven by an in-house technology platform that is available across the web and mobile. The entire process of customer onboarding, factoring, settlement etc. is digital and enables a world-class experience for each participant.
