Qin Yongling, a 39-year-old villager of Wuxuan County, worked with his wife in the city of Liuzhou, Guangxi for seven years. They had to return to hometown in 2015, as Qin suffered badly from lumbar disc herniation and was unable to do manual work. His family was put on the government's poverty list due to illness, children raising and unsafe housing. As his health conditions improved through effective treatment, Qin went back to Liuzhou in 2017 and landed a stable job to support his family. He also got a poverty-relief apartment subsidized by the local government in the county seat of Wuxuan. More and more rural residents, who previously moved away from home in search of higher salaries in more prosperous regions, have been seen coming back to rural areas in recent years. Qin also followed the trend and returned to his home to set up a chicken farm in 2018. Despite lack of expertise, fund and staff at the beginning, Qin never gave up and ran his chicken-raising business with painstaking efforts, such as attending training courses and seeking help from the local authorities. Now, more than 11,000 chickens live on the 5,000 square meters of the base, laying over 9,700 eggs per day. Benefitting from scientific raising methods and technology, Qin helped other villagers get rich and offered them technical guidance for free. His family was lifted out of poverty in 2018. In the future, Qin plans to expand his breeding industry to provide more jobs for villagers, as a way to help locals lead a better life. (Xinhua/Cao Yiming)
