Working Capital needs:

At times, most businesses experience some constraints in cash flow due to the cash flow cycle, which is affected by collections, credit terms and stock management.

Sound and healthy growth of your business requires investment in capital assets that will help you increase productivity over the medium to long term. Investing in capital assets will have a big impact on your daily cash flow if not properly planned for.
