Bhavik Patel, a man from Punjab, India, saw the opportunity of opening a business while he was studying in Fiji, and he did exactly that.

Mr Patel and his wife Nirali, opened their cloth­ing business six months ago in Navua under an investor permit. Their business is called Niralben Patel Invest­ment Pte Ltd. They plan to open four branches in Fiji.

Ms Patel is also a design­er.

“We are planning to open another branch in Nakasi by the end of this year as we have a large number of customers and followers on social media from this area. Now we have two em­ployees, and we are looking forward to creating more employment once we open another branch in Suva,” Ms Patel said.

“Our long-term goal is to open four branches around Fiji as we have our own firm in India and I am a fashion designer by profes­sion. I design my own prod­ucts and get them supplied here in Fiji and for this rea­son we have the best quality product that we can sell at an affordable price for peo­ple in Fiji.”

Ms Patel said they were in the process of identifying what the customers needed so they could cater for the demands from Fijians.

“Our focus is on help­ing the customers identify what they want and need as soon as they enter the store through the use of superior personal customer atten­tion, great product selection, and reasonable prices, the company will capitalise on this promising opportunity,” she said.

“The appropriate location will help efficiently lay out and plan the store to in­crease sales and give the cus­tomers the utmost in atten­tion. The management team has a wealth of business, financial, and mechanical experience that will ensure a great investment and the overall success of the ven­ture.

“The projected growth rate is quite steady and has the potential to grow expo­nentially along with the in­crease in residential devel­opment.”
