Women enjoy micro-finance gains

Fiji Times - Monday, February 22, 2010

MEMBERS of the public had a chance to learn about micro-finance and business planning at a micro-finance expo at the Westpac Bank in Suva on Saturday.

It was organised as part of the bank's aim to help the people learn about micro-finance.

Reserve Bank official Filimoni Waqabaca applauded Westpac's initiative.

Mr Waqabaca said it was important for people to have a good knowledge of credit, interests and borrowing aspects.

Some women at the expo were very excited by the information they received.

Iva Mere said the knowledge would help her improve her family budget and allow her to save more.

Ms Mere said such initiatives were beneficial for people because they learnt about how to get help from the banks for their homes and families.
