People: Couple finds success selling ethnic handmade cloth
Yang Chenglan, from the Dong ethnic group, was the first student from her village to go to university, and also the first to return home to run a business. In March 2016, Yang and her husband, Wu Fangjun, gave up their jobs in the city and started a business producing and selling the ethnic group’s handmade cloth online. After two years, sales from the couple’s online shop reached more than 1 million yuan ($159,200). Their products sold well in Beijing and Shanghai, as well as in South Korea and Australia. The couple also set up a workshop employing villagers.
