Speaking on the announcement, Ujjivan Small Finance Bank Ltd., Managing Director, Mr. Samit Ghosh, said, “The electric vehicle is a potential income earning opportunity, especially beyond the Tier-II cities of the country. We recognise that very few financial institu tions are offering such financing options in this segment. Our par tners hip with Kinetic will go a long way in addressing the financial needs of such customers and enable them to join the mission of a cleaner and a greener India.”

Speaking on the announcement, Kinetic Group Chairman, Mr. Arun Firodia, said, “At Kinetic Green, our vision is to bring green mobility to millions.  Our range of electric three wheelers helps reduce air pollution in our crowd ed cities but also bring down the cost of commute for the common man.  Owning and operating our lithium-ion based electric three wheelers for passenger and cargo delivery is a solid self-employment opportunity for toda y’s unemployed youth and those engaged in menial jobs or renting an auto-rickshaw. They can be respectfully an d gainfully employed and earn as much as Rs 30,000 a month using these three wheelers. There being no fuel co st and very low operating cost, their take home earning is very good. However, this segment of society needs af fordable loans to get started with this enterprise. We are very optimistic about our tieup with Ujjivan Small Fi nance Bank, as they understand this category of customers very well. In fact, they are experts in financing the under-banked and share our vision of financial inclusion and social upliftment of the needy.”
