Babacar knows many of the traders who attend the weekly markets, so his animals are usually sold in advance, meaning that he has no problems disposing of them. His only problem is to find enough money to allow him to increase the number of animals that he has. Babacar takes care of his animals himself, taking them to pasture from eight in the morning until six in the evening.
With the money that he earns, Babacar pays for his children's studies and improves the standard of food available for his family, including his mother, for whom he is financially responsible.
If he had the resources, Babacar would like to expand his herd and have many more cattle, this would maximise his earnings.
Il paie les études de ses enfants avec les bénéfices acquises, améliore les conditions alimentaires de sa famille y compris sa mère qui est aussi à sa charge.
S’il a les moyens, Babacar aimerait avoir beaucoup d’autres bœufs, agrandir son troupeau, pour pouvoir maximiser son profit.
