Liang Yingmi (L) and her husband Liang Anhe are pictured on the way to farm work in Wuying Village, which lies on the border between south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous County and southwest China's Guizhou Province, May 24, 2019. Liang Anhe and Liang Yingmi are a couple from Wuying, a mountain village inhabited by the Miao ethnic group across the border between south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region and southwest China's Guizhou Province. Anhe and Yingmi were childhood friends and got married in 1975. They had struggled against poverty for decades, providing for the whole family with just a 0.13-hectare rice paddy. In recent years, life in Wuying has significantly improved under local poverty-relief efforts. There are now only four impoverished households in the village, down from 92 in 2016. Anhe and Yingmi's children have also bid farewell to poverty. Their elder son moved to a nearby town while their second son became a village entrepreneurial leader. Despite the hard times they had gone through, the marriage between 70-year-old Anhe and 67-year-old Yingmi has stood the test of time. Clinging to a simple lifestyle, the old couple are still ready to witness what is to happen in their home village. (Xinhua/Huang Xiaobang)
