  • The Maasai are now able to afford mobile phones. Mobiles phones are worth about as much as a goat, which most Maasai families have a few off. 
  • They use mobiles to inform each other about watering holes, grazing areas, trade cattle, and even get medical remotely. 
  • Phones are usually charged with government provided solar charging stations or diesel generators. 
  • Banks have been providing mobile banking services that make it easier for the Maasai to make transactions remotely.
