Economy[edit]

Most income is generated from people settled abroad mainly the UK and Spain. The main crop is wheat; corn and rice are also grown if the weather is right. The River Bunhar is a growing threat to crops and fields.

There are now many shops run by local villagers selling everything from produce to beauty products.

Mamyan is becoming a prospering village with many new outstanding houses being built over the last ten years. The violence that blighted the village over last few decades is now decreasing, meaning more harmony in the village. However, rising food prices coupled with high rates of unemployment, means most residents struggle to eke out a living in a difficult environment.
