An article in the Business Insider on the “Micro Merchant Market Sizing and Profiling Report” by MasterCard, in collaboration with Confederation of All India Traders, states that small businesses contribute 45% of India’s GDP. That’s three times more than what Corporate India does, and that too at an annual growth rate of 11.50%.
