Malagasy Ariary overview

The ariary (sign: Ar; ISO 4217 code MGA) is the currency of Madagascar. It is subdivided into 5 iraimbilanja and is one of only two non-decimal currencies currently circulating (the other is the Mauritanian ouguiya). The names ariary and iraimbilanja derive from the pre-colonial currency, with ariary (from the Spanish word "real") being the name for a silver dollar. Iraimbilanja means literally "one iron weight" and was the name of an old coin worth ​1⁄5 of an ariary.

Madagascar's Homegrown Auto Industry Is Fascinating

While most of the cars we tend to encounter on a daily basis are made by huge, global corporations, it’s important to remember that there’s interesting cars being put together all over the world, including places that one doesn’t normally associate with automobile production. Madagascar is one of those places. As an island with a fairly small population, you wouldn’t think they’d have a completely indigenous and local car industry. But they do. It’s not big, but it is very interesting, and I think the cars they’ve built are pretty damn cool.
