Lianggang Village in Binhai County is located in northern Jiangsu. The village has 510 households, 110 of which are of low income. It is a provincial-level poverty-stricken village. Cui Can from the Xinchang Track Maintenance Depot joined the provincial-level poverty alleviation team and has been the village's first secretary since 2016. Knowing that black goats are profitable and can be raised separately, which can drive more poor families out of poverty, Cui Can set up a goat cooperative with 27 low-income farmers, raising more than 500 goats. Good quality has attracted many railway units to purchase for many years, increasing the average income of farmers by more than RMB 2,000.
