Kavata is very enthusiastic about the growth of her food-stall business. She works every day, doing her best to increase her clientele; and she has managed to do so. Her greatest challenge is that her working capital is insufficient to meet her projected market demand.

This is precisely the need she would resolve with her Kiva loan, her fifth loan with the Yehu Microfinance Trust. She will use it to buy rice, wheat flour and maize flour to supplement her food stock and have a greater range of products to meet her customers' greatest needs.

Her dream is to succeed in expanding her business and to keep it stocked at all times with enough food products. While this is happening, she works tirelessly to manage her accounts receivable and a rapid turnover of her stock, which she is managing to invest in, although not in the quantities she aims to have.
