We often hear of rags to riches stories from people all over the world. How these people managed to climb up the ladder of success is what touches and inspires the struggling individuals to also get on their feet and give a shot on their own fate.
There are many rich people who no longer want to look back on where they came from. They are simply contented with what they currently have and who they have become.
However, there are a few who have decided to give back to the less fortunate ones.
Just like what this businessman from China did.
Xiong Shuihua was born in Xiongkeng village in the city of Xinyu, southern China. After earning millions, the business tycoon decided to return to the village and give everyone their own awesome place to live.
The Chinese millionaire demolished the wooden huts where the villagers live and bulldozed the muddy roads and built luxury homes as a replacement.
The 54-year-old Xiong even promised to provide 3 meals a day to the elderly people and those who have a low income.
The whole area has been transformed in recent years, and now, a total of 72 families are enjoying life in luxury new apartment.
The families who were particularly kind to the businessman were given villas of their own, in a project amounting to more than $6 Million.
“I earned more money than I knew what to do with, and I didn’t want to forget my roots. I always pay my debts, and wanted to make sure the people who helped me, when I was younger and my family were paid back,” Xiong Shuihua said.
