Village sees number of households below poverty line decrease rapidly

Huaqiao, in Gansu province's mountainous Kangxian county, used to be a poverty-stricken village, with 126 of its 215 households living below the poverty line.

"Back then there were no concrete roads in the village, and the paths became a mixture of mud and animal feces whenever it rained," said Yang Guide, who runs a grocery store in Huaqiao.
