Southeast Buku Village is located in Belang District, Southeast Minahasa Regency where some of the residents in this village make a living as a fresh fish intermediary trader. In general, those who carry out activities as intermediary traders are men or husbands because sometimes they have to work at night. However, there is one thing that is different in this Southeast Buku Village, namely that women who carry out activities as middlemen are women. Some of the housewives who live in this Southeast Buku Village are women with multiple professions, namely apart from working as housewives at home, they also work as traders of fresh fish to help their husbands increase family income. This profession has been carried out by some women in the Southeast Buku Village. This study aims to examine and determine the role of the wife as a housewife and as an intermediary trader as well as to analyze the income of women as intermediary traders in Southeast Buku Village, and to determine the contribution of women's income as intermediary traders to family income. The data obtained will be processed and analyzed descriptively qualitatively and descriptively quantitatively. Qualitative descriptive analysis is used to provide discussions of qualitative data related to existing theories. The results of the analysis show that the domestic role is the role that a wife should do such as cooking, washing, sweeping, etc. A woman middleman in Southeast Buku Village spends 5 hours a day. While the role of the public, namely work outside the home such as being an intermediary trader, spends 6 hours a day. The results of the analysis also found that the contribution of women's income to family income was 49.42%. This shows that women as intermediary traders contribute enough to the total family income in meeting family needs.
