This kind of mini malls are popping up everywhere in Burco

@TimaJilic how's Burco, are you still there?
Salaam Cawo, haa walaal Alhamdulillah, I am still in Burco, magaaladii way nuuraysaa. Nolol wacan baa taala meesha Alhamdulillah, fiidka horeba salaada Makhrib ka dib ayaad caanihii geela oo daray ah hadda lasoo lisay oo kulul helaysaa, Geel dairy farms are now in the outskirts of the city, beero iyo wax soo saar wanaagsana way yeelatay.
 
It's good. We should open multiplexes like this for small time traders. The shop-fronts(bakaaro) in Somalia should donate a portion of their profits to create a 'multiplex' like this and rent out a 'shop front'. It's a good business investment to create multiplex. You receive good returns from rentals, but it requires government intervention to force people to stop selling outside in open market places so they are forced into multiplexes.

Right now 'shop-fronts' are not ideal in Somalia, they are not contained in one place, sometimes u have to travel the other side of town for a specific product. If they were in a mini mall like this or pedesterian mall as they call it, this would ensure 'foot traffic' for all businesses in the multiplex. But if the 'bakaar' is somewhere else independently by himself, it is bad location because he is missing all the foot traffic he could've scored from being located in a mini mall. It's in their interest small traders to bring their products into one building.

Most of these street peddlers could barely afford the mats they sit on.

If the government stops them from trading they'll have a riot at their doorsteps.

Maybe NGOs could get involved and subsidize some stands for them so the streets look better.

Wish we had a bazaar like the one in Istanbul. Doesn't look that expensive to build ($2k -5k per store).
