Description of the project: As of 2019, a loan insight software company, Aeloi Technologies, has helped fifty women access affordable financing through an innovative digital token loan system. As a pilot project, Aeloi software tracks impact sector funds, with the goal of bridging the financing gap for 700,000 climate entrepreneurs. They have successfully lowered per-unit costs and de-risked loans in the electric minibuses –safa tempo– industry of Kathmandu and now target the agriculture sector. Because financial technology -fintech- is male dominated, Aeloi Technologies currently supports women entrepreneurs to increase their business assets and income, get rid of toxic interest rates, gain decision making power and social freedom.
