walmartWalmart, the world’s largest retailer, aims to quadruple its exports from India to $10 billion per year by 2027. Along with Flipkart, the company has been conducting extensive training sessions for MSMEs.

Many more entrepreneurs are expected to graduate from the Vriddhi program in the coming months, according to Walmart and Flipkart. Both organizations intend to work with SMEs by providing online and physical market access in India and around the world. Walmart Vriddhi, which was launched in 2019, intends to empower 50,000 MSMEs in India over the course of five years.
