Mo Yunjuan, one of the beneficiaries of the poverty relief efforts, relocated from a mountainous area to the Guangming residential compound with her family where she was able to soon find a job at a poverty alleviation workshop.

“I can earn money and take care of my children. I have worked here for almost one year,” said Mo, adding that she could earn at least 2,000 yuan each month.
