In Magba, another salutary initiative championed by the grassroots people and supported by PNDP gave the 50,000 people in the municipality and its environs a befitting Central Market.
With the construction of the three blocks of sixteen shops in August 2014, traders and buyers alike can go about their activities in a more secure setting. Vendorsâ€™ goods were no longer at the mercy of the rains. The construction of a six public toilets and the provision of garbage disposal bins in the market also improved upon hygienic conditions.
All these changes which cost 59,637,513 FCFA, with 51,171,971 FCFA being PNDPâ€™ support from C2D funding, resulted in an increase in the amount of taxes and rents collected from the Magba Central Market.
