What has been your biggest hurdle?

Corruption within the State Procurement and unethical practices of the officials - Our Cashflow, Supply of beverages/Groceries to Corporates & Government Departments - the procurement of these goods requires cashflow to purchase from retailers, which have become very popular and challenging - Government and Corporates take 30days to pay or most of the time longer. The procurement of groceries has become a daily challenge, as we don't hold accounts with retailers for this commodity.
