Abstract: This paper analyses the economic position of female heads of households in Ndala (Tanzania). It explores the differences between female and male-headed households and the survival strategies they adopt. It focuses on the household as an economic unit in which agriculture and non-agricultural income-generating projects are important. The acquisition of land, the supply and demand of labour, as well as income generation through agricultural and non-agricultural activities are the main focus of analysis. Fieldwork was conducted in Ndala in 1992-1996.
