Norman Finance Limited, a Papua New Guinean owned company, is aiming to provide quality services to the people of Fiji.
Launched in Suva on June 14, the company director, Gabriel Andandi says his finance company has 26 branches in all the 22 provinces in PNG and has the reputation of providing quality services and will do the same in Fiji.
“In PNG, Norman Finance Ltd is a nationwide finance company and we have the reputation. We wish to do the same to our Melanesian brothers and sisters in Fiji,” he said.
“As Melanesian’s we live in a cash economy and our financial needs are unexpected and similar. My company aims to meet those needs with our one day’s service.”
He said finance company has met all government regulations to comply with Fiji laws.
“Norman Finance wishes to be a new player in Fiji to help in the development of Fiji. We are not here to compete with the existing finance companies but wish to provide options to clients,” he said.
“I have the resources and capital base to expand to all other provinces in Fiji within a year or two. This means creating new employment opportunities for Fijians and paying tax to the Fiji government.”
Norman Finance is currently giving out soft loans to clients, both private and public ranging from $200 to $2000 (US$100 – US$1,000) but flexible to increase upon client’s requests and capabilities to re-pay from one to six fortnights.
“Slowly we would like to extend our client base as much as possible in Fiji as a Melanesian brother and we are very excited about the possibilities here,” he said.
