Norman Finance director Gabriel Andandi announced on Saturday in Suva that his company would sponsor two students attending the University of the South Pacific’s Laucala campus and two attending the Fiji National University in Suva.
“The students I wish to sponsor are those who come from poor families and struggling financially in Fiji. I wish to sponsor those who are marginalised and disadvantaged,”Andandi said.
“We have given back to the communities in PNG by way of supporting students’ fees for more than 2000 students since 1997. It is our corporate responsibility to support the students.
“Those we have supported since 1997 are now doctors, lawyers, teachers and many are influential men and women in PNG occupying various professions.” The patron of the students’ association, Joyce Mano, welcome the sponsorship and thanked Norman Finance Ltd.
“Norman Finance is new in Fiji but we are excited with the milestone announcement,” he said.
Norman Finance is the only nationwide finance company in PNG with 26 branches in all the 22 provinces and plans to have more branches in Fiji as well.
PNG High Commissioner to Fiji Lucy Bugari attended the celebration which took place at the Pearl Harbour Resort outside Suva.
More than 70 students and members of the PNG community attended the celebrations.
