Senegal: Rebuilding the Mbayenne marketplace

Commerce is vital to any community. A healthy, thriving village needs a central place where farmers and traders can sell their goods. Following discussions with the Taiba N’Diaye Women’s Association, Taiba N’Diaye started a project to rebuild the Mbayenne marketplace.

Now complete, the new marketplace is a clean, shaded space in which Taiba’s vendors can sell fresh and other produce. The improved working conditions ensure better wellbeing for vendors and customers alike. Construction took just 3 months and was aided by several workers from the local community.

Following this success, a second project will start shortly to refurbish Taiba N’Diaye’s marketplace as well.
