Buyeo County Supports Women's Business with Footbath Bus

According to Yonhap News,

(BUYEO=Yonhap News) Buyeo County will operate a footbath bus project in order to encourage women to start unique businesses.

On July 6, the county will offer footbaths on a bus at the parking lot of the 16th Seodong Lotus Flower Festival event venue.

The project is run by Buyeo's new work center for women and seeks to provide women who are out of work opportunities to start their own businesses or find new jobs through education and training.

The women who ran the footbath bus took part in the center's rural area friendly beauty course in the beginning of last year, then passed the Department of Economics and Transportation's certification course for skin beauty.

Operating the footbath bus project will be the first step towards establishing their own businesses for the women. Customers will be treated to a footbath infused with lotus flower scented oils.

Customers who post their experiences up on their SNS will receive special regional products.

The footbath bus will be running until September 30, and the fee for a footbath is KRW 5,000.
