Ramata  Bouna
At age 32, Mrs. Ramata Bouna has been in business for five years. She is the mother of four children, the oldest of whom is 15 and the youngest is eight. Her business is selling fresh fish. She goes to get her fresh batch from the boatmen and comes back to sell them at the local market. She gets up early, around 6 am, and by 2 pm she has finished her day. It should be noted that since she has no refrigerator, she does all she can to move her merchandise quickly.
She has no family responsibilities except her own personal needs; her profits are therefore reinvested in her business. To maximize her profits, she wants to take on cosmetic sales in the future.

Agée de 32 ans, madame Ramata Bouna fait du commerce depuis 5 ans. Elle est mère de 4 enfants dont le plus âgé a 15 ans et le cadet, 8 ans. Son activité consiste à vendre du poisson frais. Elle part se ravitailler chez les piroguiers pour venir revendre dans le marché local. Elle se lève tôt vers 6h du matin et à 14h, elle a déjà fini sa journée. Il faut noter que puisqu’elle n’a pas de chambre froide elle fait tout pour vite écouler sa marchandise.
Elle n’a pas de charges familiales sinon ses propres besoins ; son bénéfice est donc reversé dans l’activité. Pour maximiser son profit, elle veut se lancer dans le futur dans la vente de produits cosmétiques.
