Kasanita "Nita" Faagau-Tiliti sat down and talked about her experiences as a co-owner of Continental Appliance Company in San Francisco. They offer appliance repair services in the Bay Area.
Nita is a hard-working Polynesian business owner, wife, and mother of three. She and Sal (husband and co-owner of Continental Appliance Co.) feel blessed to run their own business and serve customers in the Bay Area. She explained the value of investing in home appliances. In a rich place like the Bay Area, there's a temptation to throw out defective home appliances especially if the warranty expired or if there's no warranty at all. But Nita talked about the convenience of calling her appliance repair company to come to the homes of customers and repair the appliance, and the environmental benefit of re-using the repaired appliance as opposed to throwing it away and adding to the landfill.
