Life Stories: Connecting Masai Women in Kenya

Good Health and Well-Being
Decent Work and Economic Growth

Sophia, Masai Village, Hell’s Gate National Park, Kenya

In June 2012, Mobile for Development travelled to Kenya to meet the Masai Villagers of Hell’s Gate National Park near Lake Naivasha in Kenya. The Masai are pastoralists, farming sheep, chicken and cows and selling both primary and secondary products as their primary source of income. Only recently has mobile penetration reached these remote farmers. Here, we speak to Sophia, a young mother, who explains how she benefits from using mobile to beneficially impact her business, solve health issues in the village and increase safety.
