Yang Chenglan, a member of the post-1980 generation from the Dong ethnic group, is the first college student from her village, 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 textiles online.

Through online platforms, their products have sold well in Beijing and Shanghai, as well as Japan, Italy, South Korea and Australia, with annual sales of more than 2 million yuan ($289,180).

Currently, Yang is building a small village spread over 5,333 square meters with a workshop, dyeing house, weaving room and drying field, creating a better overall customer experience. It will be completed and put into use on Oct 1.
