Mena ka hiki nga whakawhiu ki ngā kamupene tuku pūtea tarewa nanakia, ka aukati aua mahi. Koinei tā tētahi kaimahi tiaki pūtea. He whakaaro puaki tera i roto i tētahi pepa kāwanatanga arotake i te ture Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance.

E ai ki te tumuwhakarae o te ratonga tahua pūtea o Māngere, e ai ki a Darryl Evans me kakama te whakatau i taumata o te hua moni me te utu a ngā kaitaupua moni.

“Many money lenders especially the third, fourth tier lenders, the piranha's that target the poor, they're already underground, they're already operating from mobile shops, they're already door knocking low income communities, they're in the back of two dollar shops,” i mea atu ia.

Hei tā Evans, ka kore anō e mātau ngā ture a te kirimana, he iti rawa ngā kupu ki te pānui. Hei tāna, nā whai anō, ka hoki ngā ture ki te ngau i te tangata mai i te hainatanga o te kirimana.

“Why are our contracts not in Māori, Samoan, Tongan, and a range of other languages so that our people truly understand what they're signing?” 

E whakaarohia ana e te kāwanatanga kia whakarite taumata i te itareti me ngā utu, hei whakakaha i ngā whiunga mō te tauari poka noa i te putea.

Ka kī atu te Minita o Te Manatū Tauhokohiko a Kris Faafoi, “The review at this stage has uncovered some practises that we're not happy with, whether it be high interest rates, debt collection practises or some of the practises by mobile truck shops and mobile traders.”

Hei tā Evans ko te nuinga o ngā whānau e noho pōikaika ana kua pokea e te nama nui

“What they actually need money for is to put kai on the table,” i kōrero atu ia. “They need money to keep the rental because they've often got into arrears and they're two or three weeks away from becoming homeless.”

E rapu ana te kāwanatanga i ngā whakaaro o te marea i tā rātou ipurangi MBIE tae noa ki te rā tuatahi o Hereturikōkā.
