Zimei is a Jinuo villager in south Yunnan’s Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture.

Thanks to China's poverty-alleviation policy in recent years, she has engaged in agrotourism and opened an agritainment hotel in the countryside, selling local specialties like tea, wild honey and Jinuo crafts. As a result, she bettered off greatly.

The Jinuo/Jino is one of the Yunnan ethnic groups who directly entered the socialist society from primitiveness after the founding of the PRC in 1949.
