A former Fijian resident is giving Fijian families here a chance to buy expensive electrical items at low prices.

To young enterprising Fijians, Rajneel Kumar is willing to lend a helping hand in setting up their businesses.

The 44-yearold, formerly of Varadoli in Ba, but now living in Melbourne, Australia, has brought back almost every electrical item you can find in a home along with equipment and machines for outside use through his company, Global Recyclers, based at 29, Ravouvou Street in Lautoka.

“I aim to follow what the Attorney-General and Minister for Economy Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum wants – sell in volume at a low price,” he said.

An environmental Auditor by trade, Mr Kumar decided to go out on his own and run a business, one that would benefit not only him but many low income earners as well.

A month ago, Mr Kumar met an unemployed family in Lautoka. He took them to his warehouse and gave them clothes and asked them to sell it to provide for their needs.

Today, the family continues to buy clothes and other items from him and sell, more or less operating small from home and supporting themselves. This is his motive. He wants Fijians to help themselves and where he can help, he wants to do so.

The majority of the items are new, except that either the cartons were damaged or the bodies had cosmetic problems. Apart from that, it operates brand new. Items are sold to anyone at wholesale prices but Mr Kumar wants those who buy and want to set up their own business from there to follow the same concept of selling the items at a price afforded by those in the low income bracket.

Mr Kumar took the Fiji Sun on a tour of the warehouse, viewing items that were on sale. One thing was for sure – the prices were only half of what you would normally pay in shops and some prices are crazy. Goods range from all sizes of televisions from 21 inches to 65 inches, TV’s with DVD player, commercial and home kitchen appliances, bread making equipment, electric ovens, microwaves of all sizes and prices as low as $80, fridges, washing machines, dryers, brush-cutters from $60 (electric, battery and fuel operated), trimmers from as low as $50, lawnmowers both battery and fuel operated, second hand clothing and shoes are some of the many items available.
