Planning is the main target or strategy when you’re nearing retirement according to Kelepi Gucake.

Mr Gucake, 56, is originally from Tubou, Lakeba, Lau,and is a retired assistant superintendent of Police serving the Military & Police for the last 30yrs with three grown up children.

Mr Gucake is the managing director of Batiniwai Family Taxi Tours Consultant and his wife Jimaima Gucake is the director administration and finance of their family business.

Their business was established in 2015, operating taxis at MHCC in Suva.

Their business was assisted through the Government’s small & micro enterprise development initiative.

“Since I retired in 2015, I had set aside some savings for purchasing the vehicles,” Mr Gucake said.

Mr Gucake added business had been good so far, however at first there were some challenges.

“We had a lot of competition from other taxi operators,” he said.

Mr Gucake’s advice to everybody out there nearing retirement is to maximise and utilise their resources for their future investment.

“Investing in our people is important and always look after your health and live life to the fullest,” he said.

His long term plan is to dedicate his life in serving his community and to invest their savings in other businesses.

He dedicates all that his achieved to his late hardworking parents, his wife and three children and to the Government in empowering indigenous Fijians to sustain their business ventures.
