PERSONAL NOTE: An inspiring story of what one villager in a small town could make money selling things made by the local people…I assume this is possible in a small village, not in big cities, where the government might have certain requirements before you can process the foods and sell them to others in a way this young villager is doing now…but this is CHINA…a young friend just told me recently he decided to sell wild fish in China…I said that today in America, doctors encourage more Americans to eat fish, less meat, for health! steve, usa, december 112, 2018 firstname.lastname@example.org

A villager in Southwest China’s Guizhou province wanted a way to make sure his fellow locals can enjoy their favorite delicacies anywhere, and introduce the area’s unique offerings to a broader audience. His wish has come true, thanks to e-commerce.
After working far from his hometown for 12 years, Li Jiyong decided to go back home to tap a market for his hometown specialties. Based on his successful experience running an online clothing shop back in 2011, the 34-year-old applied those skills to sell agricultural products in his hometown this year.
As Li did careful research and surveyed to ensure the quality of each product before listing online, his shop saw great sales growth. Now, sales revenue for Li’s online business has reached more than 200,000 yuan ($28,957.48) every month, providing a channel for nearly 10 other local entrepreneurs.
