XIANGXI — Peng Guofei, a 75-year-old villager in a remote village, is well-known as “Grandpa Fei” online. He was born and raised up in the Yangmu Village located deep in the Wuling mountains, central China’s Hunan Province.
With the help of local poverty relief officials, villagers get access to internet in recent year as the whole village embraces full 4G signal coverage.
In the beginning of 2020, Peng took internet courses in the village to become an Internet influencer and was presented with a smart phone. Along with some post-90s, Peng built up a team in September to make short videos to sell agricultural products online. Their videos got lots of likes online because of the engaging content.
