The Ma’di society is predominantly agricultural, with more than 90% of the population of Moyo dedicated to this activity. In its vast majority, they practices subsistence agriculture, which draws a rural environment with very little monetary activity.
In this society, the roles of women and men are very marked, with activities that fall 100% on one or the other sex and with quite a few activities in which men and women are expected to mix. For example, all the management and upkeep of the home will fall on the woman (cleaning, childcare, cooking, food shopping, etc.), while decision-making (negotiations for marriages and dowry payments, solution of intra-family problems or with other families, etc.) or construction will be the work of men.
