For Maasai living in a conservation area, hours from any substantially-sized town, finding ways to generate any income can be all but impossible.

MP has several partner programs that provide Tanzanians in our focus area with sustainable ways to earn money. These not only offer immediate support but also build business skills and opportunities for steady work into the future.

Beans in the market
Many small businesses offer staple food items.

Our beading project translates a common, traditional craft into a project managed by and benefitting Maasai women. Maasai Partners and collaborating organizations also offer microloans, which give entrepreneurs the startup they need to open a shop or start a service.
