Born in 1947, Adamu is married and has seven children. They live in a six-room apartment in Alachu Mankon Bamenda, Cameroon.

Adamu has been facing diificulties in life which has hindered his raising enough capital to carry out a lucrative business. The greatest challenge he had in life was the fact that his father died when he was very young and did not give him a good education.

He joined Grounded and Holistic Approach for People's Empowerment (GHAPE) in 2011. Since then, he has received and repaid one loan.

With this new loan, Adamu plans to buy wood for the construction of a pig fence, buy bags of pig feed, piglets, and also to buy feeders. He says his activity will succeed because he has obtained some training on pig farming, he knows where to buy a good breed of piglets, and because he has a piece of land where he will construct his pig fence.

Adamu says he will use part of his profit to pay school fees for his children and also to take care of the basic needs of his family.
