Entrepreneurial businesses in Bayonnais are a witness to practicality. The
businesses are meeting community needs. Many of the
businesses address "the last mile" of products being
available to consumers [in Bayonnais, the “last mile” is actually 17 miles!). For even basic necessities,
Bayonnaisians have to travel 17+ miles to Gonaives, St. Mark or Listere. And they don’t have transportation, so they walk or pay for a ride (moped, truck, etc.). The trip can easily consume an entire day. The Entrepreneurs are making products available in the community, and at a fair price.
