LOW-INCOME home buyers are struggling to make ends meet because of the poor repayment structure system used in Fiji.
This was the remark by Doctor Abdul Hassan from the University of the South Pacific's School of Land Management and Development at the Fiji Update 2012 held in Nadi last week.
"People should not pay more than 30 per cent of their gross income on housing. If they are forced to pay more than that, then their quality of life is being affected," he said.
Dr Hassan said there were a number of issues that contributed to making decent housing out of the reach of low- to middle-income earners.
