The RBF policy allows maximum interest rate of 6 per cent and we at HFC are offering at 4.99%” he added.
“The facility is not only with the view of RBF Flood Rehabilitation scheme, but as part of social responsibility of HFC, as a local institution to stand out for the people of Fiji’ said Isikeli Tikoduadua. In addition to this, we are ready to assist customers affected with repayment holidays and restructure programs.
