The 29-year-old farmer Liu became an abandoned child at the age of five and grew up with the support of local villagers. In 2013, she suffered from a serious disease and got into debt because of the medical costs. In 2016, local poverty relief staff advised her running an e-commerce shop and helped her do the decoration. She concentrated her attention on the shop's business and sold local specialties for impoverished families to increase their income. (Xinhua/Tao Ming)(mcg)(zt)
