Peo­ple: Cou­ple finds suc­cess sell­ing eth­nic hand­made cloth

China Daily - - PAGE TWO -

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.
