This sort of savings organization is not limited to developing countries. It was pretty popular in Germany too, at least until the 1980ies, in the form of "savings cabinets" which worked like an ASCA. You can still see them in long-running local pubs. Compare de:Sparschrank (No English translation yet). --Mkill (talk) 08:13, 23 June 2014 (UTC)

  • I removed the badges related to this (adequately informal) merge request. A proper rationale is missing. Also, these are not just different names for exactly the same thing. There are differences between the various models with each model having its distinct history. We just need to elaborate on these specifics. de:Sparschrank clearly isn't the same, neither is Hui. --PanchoS (talk) 23:49, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
  • Merge. These should definitely be merged. Merging is not saying they are equivalent, but they are the same concept and the article can delve into the differences easily.

Menage / Menodge - Scottish equivalent of a rotating savings/credit assocationEdit

A version of these schemes exists in Scottish English and Scots. What level of reference would be needed to add it to the list of examples and by extension have it linked from the menage disambiguation page?

I've found an article from The Herald from 2017 that covers it, Wiktionary have that use as well but obviously wouldn't suffice.

The dictionary of the Scots Language has several uses of it, and lots of variations likely a consequence of regional accents and phonetic spellings. I suspect that it does not warrant an entry of its own, this would seem a natural home. While Hui are distinct in terms of interest, the features of a Menage as covered in DSL (and indeed the phrase "Couldn't run a menage" seem more prototypical to RSaCA as covered here.
