Hua Kanu loan recipient Goldwings Supply Service was featured in an OHA Loans commercial which aired during the 2019 Kamehameha Song Contest. It is set to air again during the 2019 Merrie Monarch Festival.
Established in 1976, Goldwings Supply Service Inc. is a second-generation, women-owned small business. The company primarily services the public sector, offering technical solutions in the aviation, roadways, marine and renewables fields. Historically, providing airfield operational support and aircraft parts and equipment, Goldwings expanded to pavement maintenance and solar powered niche solutions over the past 15 years. Goldwings President Lia Young Hunt said their $300,000 Hua Kanu loan will provide the necessary capital to expand their business to pursue more government projects and assist with their growth in the private, domestic and global marketplaces.
“The Hua Kanu loan program is an incredible financial product, granting crucial working capital to flourishing Native Hawaiian companies,” said Hunt. “We are thrilled to have been selected and look forward to growing our business and representing the Native Hawaiian community on a global scale”
Hua Kanu loans are one of the products offered through the Native Hawaiian Revolving Loan Fund (NHRLF), which was originally funded through the federal Administration of Native Americans and administered by OHA. NHRLF’s other loan product is the Mālama Loan, which provides loans up to $100,000 to Native Hawaiian beneficiaries to improve a home; start or expand a business; or pay for educational expenses.
