Her will to dedicate her life tohelping marginalized groups was nurtured since childhood. Her motheralways had the young Mumpuni accompany her when she went todifferent villages to care for the sick. Their house was always used asthe center for a wide range of community activities, from literacyprograms to primary health care services.Mumpuni spent some of her teenage years with the family ofSoepardjo Rustam, the former Minister of Internal Affairs. She wasvery much influenced by the family. She said that it was from them thatshe learned how to work directly with the poor people in rural areas.After winning a scientific paper competition in 1982, she was offered to study in the Institute of AgricultureBogor by the former rector of the institute. Her wish was actually to become a doctor but she failed in theselection process and decided upon studying agriculture instead. In her final year of university she wasgiven an opportunity by USAID to work with fish farmer families in North Sumatra on income generation.She then went on to work for rural communities in an integrated rural women and the environmentprogram. After university, she joined UNDP and became the manager of a low-cost housing program forthe urban poor. All of these experiences helped her developed a clear understanding of how to createcommunity-based models.It was her husband, an activist in the micro hydro power movement, who persuaded her to return to therural region and develp rural electrification.

offered subsidized rates as part of a political program. She realized that co-genertaion (the combined useof hear and power) would be crucial to a sustainable rural electricity movement.
