Women empowerment is all about providing economic and intellectual freedom to women to make their own choices, voice their opinions, and speak their minds without asking for validation. From providing equal opportunities at work to not judging them based on their gender, Aries Group has always been at the forefront to bring inclusive reforms in its company policies to support its staff.
Aries Group, a multinational consortium based in Sharjah, UAE, recently announced and implemented a revolutionary reform to pay salary to homemakers. Utilizing this money, one of the proud recipients Fiji Sudheer ,Sharjah resident mother of 3 has decided to buy an electric car to support her in the day-to-day chores.
“It has always been my dream to own a car, and this ‘Spouse Salary’ has finally made it possible. It gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride indeed. I will be soon buying an electric car, mostly for dropping my kids to school and help me to commute for day-to-day chores without relying on public transport. Moreover, it is environmentally friendly and cost-effective.”, she mentioned.
Electric cars in Dubai are available for an EMI of 2500 AED per month and will save approx. 1000 AED on fuel and maintenance per month.
