The woman, who became a mistress of 24,000 crores overnight, was something like this:
There is a saying that whenever God gives, he rips apart. On many people this is true. One of them is a woman from China, whose fate turned overnight so that she became a mistress of billions and trillions in one stroke.
Yes, it is very true. In May this year, this woman became rich, named Yuan Liping. With this, Yuan also joined the list of world’s richest women.
In such a situation, this question must be arising in your mind that which such treasury had got in the hands of Yuan that she had become rich overnight. So let’s lift the curtain from this secret as well.
In fact, Du Weimin (56) is the chairman of a Chinese vaccine-making company, Shenzen Kangtai Biological Products Company, and his former wife is Yuan Liping (49). In May, both of them divorced with mutual consent. It was one of the world’s most expensive divorces.
Before the divorce, Du Weimin had assets worth $ 6.3 billion, or about Rs 47,250 crore, but had to pay 161.3 crore shares of the company to his wife Yuan Liping as compensation after the divorce.
According to a Gulf News report, those shares were valued at $ 3.2 billion, or about Rs 24,000 crore at that time.
After the divorce, Du Weimin’s total assets had reduced to about $ 3.1 billion, or Rs 23,250 crore. However, this did not include the price of the pledged shares.
Du Weimin was born in 1963 into a peasant family. His childhood has been very ordinary. He began studies at a local health school in 1984 and in 1987 he got his first job as an inspector at the Jiangxi Provincial Health and Epidemic Prevention Station.
His fate changed when he quit the job of inspector to become a salesman in a vaccine company in the 1990s. His hard work and dedication made him the sales manager of the company in 1995. He then acquired the company in 2009 and became its chairman.
