Soldiering female mason transforms husband

Nailejileji, a 35 year old Maasai woman from Sanawari, Arusha, Tanzania had masonry skills and was interested in constructing biogas plants. She worked very hard to convince her husband who was hesitant to agree with her career choice since it involved traveling and working in association with other men (e.g.masons assistants). The woman insisted aggressively and moved forward with her interest. After constructing a few plants she was able to save and decided to start a retail shop for her husband to run. This changed the man’s attitude towards her occupation. He was happy and realized the value of his wife’s career.

Sometimes it is not easy for female masons to engage in biogas but it can always be done!
