Qiu Zhenqing, China
Qiu’s ingenuity preserves the livelihoods of an entire community.
Thinking quickly on her feet, Qiu realized that where there is need, there is opportunity. She took out another loan to dig a well, from which she drew water for her own use and sold water to her fellow villagers. Thanks to her ingenuity, Qiu brought many back from the brink of an economic disaster. Qiu has continued to support Chifeng Zhaowuda, holding meetings for the MFI’s nine other clients in the village. She also continues to brainstorm creative, new opportunities to empower her and her neighborhood to partake in China’s growing economy.
