Adopting digital payment into businesses bring convenience and saves time. It improves people’s experience and makes them productive. However, a large part of Nepali businesses has not resorted to digital payment methods for their lack of interest or knowledge. Helping them realize its benefits could drastically save their time and improve their productivity. We can thank Khalti for its participation in this cause to raise awareness about digital payment methods for working women.
