A local market is held every week where people from other villages come and buy goods/services from local people in Guingan and other vendors.

Problem Addressed
Three drilled wells were installed in 2005. Over the course of the years, the forages have experienced problems in functioning properly. Three water committees already established in the village have repaired the forages in the past with community donations, but they are again in need of repair.
