A Story Behind the Numbers With Kadenia Javis
Kadenia Javis was a proud member of this community. As founder and CFO of Javis Financial Services also in Columbia, SC, her business offered a suite of quality and affordable tax, credit repair, bookkeeping and insurance offerings.
Kadenia made it her mission to address economic disparities by increasing financial literacy among those of low-and moderate-income. But when her business outgrew their leased office space, she looked for an opportunity to purchase a commercial building. Her vision was to create an establishment that could serve as an anchor in the community and a source of stability for her employees and clients.
Kadenia had an excellent personal credit score but because she had been renting her existing space, she had not built significant business credit. Unfortunately, this is a challenge that thwarts many small business owners.
