The cooperative has offered job opportunities to nearly a thousand impoverished residents. In recent years, local authorities of Guangling have taken an industry-based approach towards poverty relief. By now, industries for poverty-relief purposes have been set up in the county's 43 impoverished villages, with over 2,000 target households achieving an average increase of 15,000 yuan (2,194 U.S. dollars) in annual income.
