An analysis of trajectories and positions in the field of economic activity and their joints with individual profiles, especially in terms of human capital, often confined to paid employment and the labour market. But some paths can be explored within this framework strict. Among them, those carried out by individuals who have decided to implement a business project are of great interest. On the one hand, they provide a fertile ground for the analysis of some exit strategies in unemployment, employment and investment in forms of work other than employees. On the other hand, in the current climate of under-employment, consideration is the need to consider measures likely to boost demand for labour. Business creation and development of selfemployment are probably two ways to achieve this dynamic. The study of setting up business is therefore of importance indisputable. Our goal in this article is to determine the role of human capital of a contractor to the growth and development of its business, to measure the impact of the criteria for informality and the kind on the growth of the company. For this purpose, several regressions ordered logit model were applied on employment surveys from households.
