Give it a shot at translating, so we can see that you understand each word. It's a straight-forward sentence, like これはペンです, so I don't quite understand where you're having problems.

comment Are かた and 人 interchangeable in this sentence?
No problem, I should have checked your previous posts. But putting everything one knows into the actual question helps everyone, even if people know you are a native speaker/beginner/whatever.

comment Are かた and 人 interchangeable in this sentence?
@l'électeur The question was revised after I wrote my answer. Rereading it now, I would probably write a different answer. If OP knew the relationship between 人 and 方, s/he should have said so in the question. For all I know s/he could have guessed that かた must have meant 人 without knowing the word... Pitching an answer at the right level is always guesswork and apparently I was way off... Anyway, you have already posted a nice answer that addresses all other aspects of the sentence in question.
