Khalti has been consistently striving for a cashless and digital Nepal. Due to the lockdown, we all know the financial hardship various businesses and entrepreneurs are facing. To help businesses cope with that, we have been trying to help Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) to grow the country’s GDP and economy. We have been collaborating with UNCDF to:
- Digitize and empower women-led businesses
- Make women economically strong
- Provide free Khalti QR
- Free SMS to promote women’s business
Moreover, we also believe, women, the head of the household, should be given the knowledge first to create a smart digital ecosystem. Thus, we have also been trying to make a contribution to empower and digitize women-led businesses. We have also been conducting a Smart Chhori workshop among girls and women to empower them through economic, digital literacy, and skills.
Now, with the vision of growing businesses during the lockdown, Khalti has launched a Smart Entrepreneur campaign for our merchants “स्मार्ट उद्यमी” under the Khalti Payment Gateway (KPG) service.
Khalti is a payment gateway, digital wallet, and API provider system for various online services in Nepal. This service is essential to make a super-fast online payment, loading funds, and paying utility bills.
