One of the leading business entity, Carpenters Finance, opened its doors in Nadi on Wednesday, January 28.
Located in the main street of Nadi town in Westpoint Arcade, the business aims to expand its operations with all-in-one service making it convenient for the Jetsetters.
General Manager Mr Alok Mishra said the dream of having their business operations in Nadi has finally come true.
“It’s a great pleasure being here in Nadi. I was always aiming to be here, but it was to get with the Nadi’s hard life, it may have been costly. Somehow we managed to setup here and I’m optimistic that our business will be great here,” said Mr Mishra.
“The thought came into our mind to open a business centre here as Nadi being the most important area would certainly boost our business.
“Maybe in one month’s time, we will be opening in Ba so our outreach to the customers will be wide.
The outlet in Nadi offer services in terms of bill of sales, hire purchase, money link card, payments, money exchange and financial arrangements for people who face hardships in doing repayments.
“This will give up our customers a lot of convenience as we have everything in just one place,” he added.
Nadi Town Council special administrator Robin Ali was the chief guest at the opening ceremony.
He said there has always been a strong bond between the council and Carpenters Finance.
“The relationship between Nadi Town Council and Carpenters has been very strong and I am sure it will continue to be like this.
“Nadi Town Council is a service organisation and its main objective is service delivery. We create opportunities for the people to come into the business and then we provide them with the services.”
Mr Ali also acknowledged the presence of former mayor Dr. Abdul Gani.
Morris Hedstrom (MH) Money Express Ltd has also been a prominent corporate in the market and it was their ninth outlet to start its operations.
