Abstract: Angola, like the majority of African countries, is a country heavily dependent on traditional peasant agriculture for the survival of the families. Angolan women, who are mostly peasant, have the responsibilities housekeeping, children's education and much of the agricultural work that sustains their families. This study aims to address agricultural and social issues in which male-headed households and female-headed households who live in Huambo province differ. It also aims to evaluate the results of small technological innovations in working conditions and well-being of rural women of that province, using surveys addressed to heads of households and applied in an interview context. Evaluate some differentiating facts between wives in male-headed households and widowed or divorced women that lead their own households; regarding different agricultural field tasks, as well as the rights, duties and limitations within the households and communities in which they operate. One is faced with a situation where the female-headed households are the ones which suffer major deficiencies including reduced availability of land, that will affect the quantities of food produced, lack of labour availability and access to agricultural inputs. On the other hand, contrary to the wives, women who run their households enjoy greater economic independence and security of land tenure.
