In the city of Coimbatore in southern India, Hemalatha Annamalai and her husband Bala Pachyappa are building inexpensive, low tech electric vehicles to serve the transportation needs of rural drivers. Her target customers are farmers, shopkeepers and rural traders, according to Forbes. Her company, Ampere Vehicles Private Ltd, specializes in electric cycles, scooters and load carriers. Recently the local government of Coimbatore has begun using 200 Ampere electric garbage vehicles to transport waste. The company has trained 500 workers to use their products.“Wealth accumulation is not my aim,” says Hemalatha. “ I want to create a whole new manufacturing sector. I want a lot of women to come into this sector.” Today, one quarter of her workforce of 80 employees are women. Her company has built more than 30,000 electric vehicles since she and her husband gave up high paying jobs in Singapore to pursue their dream.
