KATHMANDU -- Nepal's top e-wallet app, Khalti, has cemented its place in the country's digital payment market within two years by getting women on its side, empowering them to reduce the digital gender gap and improve their entrepreneurial skills.

Since the fintech service was launched in 2017 by Amit Agrawal, co-founder and director, Khalti has helped Nepalis to pay bills for mobile phones, satellite TV and electricity, among other things, as well as making digital services such as movie ticket booking and hotel reservation easily available.
