'Micro-entrepreneurship Karyagara’ was launched in the year 2017 with the objective to educate entrepreneurs across various modules in financial literacy. A need for such an initiative was recognized, when microentrepreneurs started setting up enterprises, growing and scaling up, but were limited by how to manage finances better. The general consensus from the microentrepreneurs in this regard has reiterated the gap in theoretical and practical knowledge to set up and use online accounting & digital payment platforms, complete compliance procedures and GST Registration process. Through Karyagara, Micro-entrepreneurship empowers micro-entrepreneurs to become independent and informed about financial and business decisions.
- Each session of Karyagara covers the following topics:
- Basics of Accounts
- Digital payments
- Micro-enterprise registration
- GST registration process
