Program Area: Poverty Alleviation & Economic Development
Location of Impact: China
Bold Idea: Build an accessible retail and distribution platform to provide access to the safe and effective products that rural communities in China need.
Why I'm Passionate About This: Over 400 million rural residents in China buy higher priced and inferior products, causing grave hygiene, safety, and malnutrition concerns for vulnerable populations. Born in rural China, I experienced the struggles of millions of rural migrants and had the opportunity to reinvent my life. Now, I seek to leverage my passion and skills to help others. For years, I worked to scale microfinance but realized making an impact required an innovative model. XinfuGo Group gives rural families access to quality essential products like safe infant formula and basic weatherizing tools for their homes, in hopes that they, too, might reinvent their lives.
