The Fiji Development Bank is working on a relief assistance program for their customers to recover from the damages sustained by Tropical Cyclone Cody and will make an announcement soon.

CEO, Saud Minam says they have activated their assessment teams based at each of their branches who are working closely with the customers to gather the necessary data which will enable them to provide appropriate level of assistance and help them recover and rebuild their businesses.

Minam says while reports and data are being collated from branches around the country, it is sad to note the damage caused by heavy winds and flooding. He has stressed that FDB will assist affected customers through its general rehabilitation measures and policy guidelines and continue to support the important segment of food chain supply.

The CEO further says they are here to help grow the Fijian economy through financial assistance which is offered at competitive and affordable rates as well as strong support from their experienced staff.
