MAASAI WOMEN IN ALELAILAI VILLAGE

MAASAI WOMEN IN ALELAILAI VILLAGE

Maasai women in Alelailai village in the Ngorongoro Conservation area, 2 hours from the town of Kiratu, learn about the WMI loan program. Olive Wolimbwa and her team traveled from Buyobo, Uganda for 36 hours by public bus to reach these women who will be the first in Tanzania to receive WMI loans. Having been relocated by the government from Ngorongoro Crater to the extremely dry region surrounding it, they live in harsh conditions and were very grateful for the launch of the loan program. WMI is partnering with the Maasai Sustainability Initiative, founded by Judy Lane, to establish this loan hub in Tanzania.
