The real issue with S.N.P.F’s lending

Dear Editor,

Thank you Mata’afa for your editorial about the government’s big brains. 

The blatant disregard for truth and honesty in the government’s lending practices requires no brain sense to know and understand. 

Grade school children know, even those child vendors on the streets can understand. E o’o lava fo’i ia Vao ma le au mama’i mafaufau e malamalama lelei lava I le tele o le fa’aletonu o le mataupu.


E fa’afefea ga sau le Saiga ave I ai le 6 milioga o kupe ale akugu’u, fagua ma fale a le malo e fai ai aga pisigisi with just his word as collateral, an empty promise of pie in the sky returns? 

Where is the C.E.O’s “big brain”?

Ioe, e le valelea uma vale. Ave la mo le Saiga miliona a le malo, without any real collateral nor a viable business plan, (which is every lending institution requirement) a oki pe sola le Saiga o fea a fa’amamaga I ai guku o le au faiai mamafa ia? 

The Point is;’s not rocket science why we are screaming foul. The mixture of stupidity and questionable deeds in these lending practices are so in your face with amateurish efforts to defend, insults any brain, pea size or otherwise. 

Oute matea a na mafia ona tautatala mai ta’ifau ma pusi, se’i tulou, ua fa’asea mai fo’i lea itupa ma nai o latou tama’i faiai.
