Jin Yuqin

Jin Yuqin was born in 1974 into a family of the Bouyei ethnic group in southwest China's Guizhou Province. She is now head of Jinyuan Woodcraft Factory, and the secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Committee of Hongguang Village, Yixian County, Anhui Province in central China.

In 2012, she was selected as a delegate to the Party's 18th national congress. In July 2016, she was awarded the title of "National Outstanding Party Affairs Worker" at the ceremony to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the Party's founding.

Even before this, Jin was known far and wide in her immediate neighborhood. Originally, she was remembered as the pretty Bouyei girl who married a local guy and settled down in his hometown far from her own. Later, she became famous for opening a successful woodcraft factory and helping local people achieve affluence.

She settled down in Hongguang Village more than two decades ago after getting married. She found the village environment quite familiar to her, because there were lots of bamboos here, just like in her hometown nestling amid great mountains.

She then thought of taking advantage of the abundant natural resources to open an ethnic woodcraft factory. After gathering information on local bamboo supply, market trends and sales channels, she opened the first factory promoting ethnic woodcraft in Yixian County.

However, initially, the factory was not a success. For quite a long time, Jin got no orders. When she tried to seek bank loans, she was swindled out of a large sum of money. She even had a narrow escape from a car accident. Yet, the hardships didn't dampen her enthusiasm.

Gradually, things began to pick up. Now, Jin's business has grown from a family workshop with less than 10 workers into a woodcraft processing factory with a 100-strong workforce. Its annual output value has increased from less than 100,000 yuan to more than 10 million yuan. Its products are sold as far away as Japan and Australia.

When the working life turned better, Jin began to help people around her, because it was one of her original aims in opening the factory. "When I first came up the idea of opening a factory, one reason was to take advantage of local wood reserves, while the other was to help the local poor people find a stable job."
