Fulani breeders in Tchaourou have created the cattle market to facilitate commercial transactions. Thus, the creation of the Local Association of Management of the Livestock Market of Tchaourou (ALGMBT) constitutes a legal framework for the market making. This research aims to analyze Tchaourou cattle market functioning and management mechanisms.The methodological approach adopted for this research is based on documentary research, field data collection by 83 actors, users of the market, processing and analysis of the results obtained by the SWOT model.In view of the results obtained, it appears that the MBCT exchanges with several municipalities in Benin or neighboring countries. The MBCT contributes to the municipality development through the various taxes, either 500f for large ruminants or 100f for small ruminants). Thus, the MBCT pays at least 80,000f to the town hall every market day. Nevertheless, the actors in the performance of their role face certain difficulties which constitute a limit to the MBCT development. Faced with these difficulties, solutions approaches have been proposed.
