Disabled woman helps self, then others via livestreams


By FENG ZHIWEI in Changsha


Despite having to deal with her own disability, Zhao Yuan has succeeded in carving out a career in e-commerce and has helped more than 2,000 other disabled people sell agricultural products.


The 50-year-old was born in the Jianghua Yao autonomous county in Hunan province.


Before being diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 24, Zhao was a dance teacher. Arthritis is a condition that causes permanent damage to the joints, especially the fingers, wrists, feet and ankles.


Eventually confined to a wheelchair, she had to leave her teaching post and started to make a living in business.
