Musu K. dwells in a poor marginalised community by a river bank but yet refused to remain poor. She started rearing pigs given to her by a friend. She invested the proceeds obtained from the sale of the pigs into fuel/firewood.

She has been a group leader in ARD's Solidarity group lending scheme and has proven to be credit worthy. As her business is becoming profitable, she now wants an individual loan that she will use to buy more fuel/wood and sticks in order to better serve the community in which she resides.

Musu intends to use the proceeds from the business to educate her three children.
