Project Achievements of the KUMBO COUNCIL:
New Markets & Parks

New Markets: Given the importance of the Mbveh market to income generation, the attention of the council was geared towards its rehabilitation.  The six entrances into this market have been replaced, with fortified iron gates. The slaughter slap was also

rehabilitated. Okrika traders and food sellers in the Mbah section of the market were transferred into the market.

Three Bush Markets have been created in some villages in Kumbo namely: the Jim- Meluf cattle market,  the Mbah food Market at Ngemsibaa, and the Mbuluf Food Market.

Markets: The Tobin Ultra Modern Market: With the Assistance from the French Development Cooperation, the Kumbo Council has also constructed Tobin - Njavnyuy Modern Market. This remarkable project has considerably improved on the economy of Kumbo given that the market is easily accessed by thousands of villagers who come there to market their respective goods. The market furthermore flourishes because of the presence of the Motor Park, with regular travellers who have to do shopping before travelling.

The Tobin Ultra Modern Market was constructed in 2003 with the assistance of the French Cooperation. It went operational in June 16, 2003. The market comprises 144 sheds, 72 decent benches in the well roofed raw food section, 8 double slabs for 16 butchers, a large section for livestock, and a travel agency parks. This project cost 157 Million, with the Kumbo Council’s contribution in kind. The project was conceived to fight poverty, as people are encouraged to take up sheds at the market and start up one business activity or the other. These sheds are rented out at give away rates, ranging from 3,000 FCFA and 5,000 FCFA (for double sheds). The market will serve the Tobin area given that it is the Administrative headquarter of Kumbo.

The Bamkika-ai Market: Attached to the Bamikika-ai Park, is another temporal market - the Bamkika-ai Market. The Kumbo Council constructed it in 2003, following demands from the population of that area. It is a daily market which functions so well, thanks to the presence of the Motor Park. This economic endeavour has sparked up numerous job and business opportunities.

:

The Kimbo - Squares Food Market: The construction of the Kimbo - Squares Food and Vegetable Market in partnership with HELVETAS Cameroon, which was inaugurated in April 6th 2005. The project costs 22,500,000 FCFA, HELVETAS provided 10,000,000 FCFA and the council the rest. The market was meant to assist women who constitute about 95% of the food sellers in the Squares market.

These women sold their products under the rain during the rainy season and under the scourging tropical sun in the dry season, besides the obvious disorders and misunderstandings.
