Managing Director of Janaki Technology and Khalti Digital Wallet Arvind Sah has been recognized with Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC) Nepal’s Suprabidh Memorial Renewable Energy Award – 2018. Minister for Population and Environment Hon. Mithila Chaudhary handed over him the cash prize worth Rs 25,000 and certificate.
Sah was honored with the prize for his Telkuwa Krishi Company.
Established in 2016, the company has been working to solve the irrigation problems of farmers in the Bara district, utilizing renewable energy. And since February 2017, the company has been adopting renewable energy technologies like submersible pump systems, tunnel farming, solar irrigation system, and marketing farmers’ productions. The company has been actively working to promote professional farming and raise the living standards of rural people.
Elated with the achievement, Sah has planned to do more in the district. He has announced that he would be utilizing the prize amount to contribute to marketing farmers’ produce by establishing ‘KISAN Collection Center’ in Bara. “As local farmers have started commercial vegetable farming, I am planning to start a collection center and a semi-organic outlet in Birgunj. Along with this, I have also planned to start a radio program on modern agriculture system and awarding farmers and consumers about healthy production and healthy food behavior, in the near future,” said Sah. “We will also be starting training and research programs for the farmers,” he added.
We here at Khalti believe that our Director being honored with such a prize is another feather added to our cap and another national recognition for the young and vibrant Khalti team.
