About Us

Bijuli Power, a private company, providing accessible financing to electric vehicle mobility for micro-entrepreneurs in the informal sector in Nepal.

We have started with the iconic Safa Tempo, or electric minibus in Kathmandu Valley. Safa Tempos have been providing public transportation services for around 30 years in Kathmandu Valley, with the majority-owned and operated by women. With over 700 Safa Tempos, we are a green city pioneer.

We are continuing this legacy by helping Safa Tempo owners continually update their technology by having access to affordable finance. We have been working with Standard Chartered Bank to provide lithium batteries loans to women micro-entrepreneurs. We also have been providing driving training loans to new drivers for Safa Tempo through our partner financial institutions.

Grounded Safa Tempo

Project Revive

There are around 200 grounded Safa Tempo at various charging stations around Kathmandu due to lack of financial accessibility. The lack of financing for lithium batteries and Covid-19 pandemic has burdened the owners and many have defaulted on their loans. The vehicles have been held up as collateral at different financial institutions. We as Bijuli Power are working to get those vehicles back on the road. For this we are looking for any interested partners to tie up and work with us to bring those vehicles and provide employment to those who are working in this sector.

Our Mission

Revive Grounded Safa tempo and get them back on road.

Safa Tempo Booking

Bijuli Power provides access to safa-tempo for private hire promoting green mobility. It has empowered 20+ women with its services and has given women safa-tempo drivers affordable access to finances through Aloi.

Bijuli Power was started back in February 2020. It was originally established to help safa-tempo women drivers to earn additional income to help pay back the loan they accessed through our parent company, Aloi. As time passed we felt it was necessary for safa-tempo women drivers to have a platform where they can earn and make their private hiring service easily accessible.
