The Ameru community in the area practice agriculture and livestock keeping in small scale and this makes their lifestyle different from the other communities. They mainly grow vegetables like cabbages, tomatoes and carrots that they sell in Isiolo and Nanyuki town. Livestock keeping is practiced widely especially in Kinna and around Lorian Swamp where pasture and water is more available.

The livestock products are consumed within Isiolo town and the rest supplied to major towns like Nairobi. The Kenya Meat Commission is a major buyer of livestock from the farmers. Borana and Turkana women participate in jewelry making, crafting jewelry that they in turn sell to tourists who visit the town.

Past historical injustices and poor infrastructure that have hindered growth and development in this county will soon be a thing of the past as the current government works hard to elevate the county by improving education, infrastructure and general standards of living for the people of Isiolo County who live in abject poverty.
