Yuping Village is located in a remote and mountainous region, and frequently hit by geological disasters. All the villagers of 2,156 were covered by the Provincial Poverty Alleviation Plan of Hunan. To the west, Yuping Village faces the Xuefeng Mountain (altitude of 1,934 meters), while to the east, a series of hills block its out-going connection. Due to severe undeveloped infrastructure and transportation, Yuping Village has formed a closed world for hundreds of years. Though only more than 10 kilometers far from the downtown, the villagers had to spend more than half a day by walking, or more than one hour jolting on a farm vehicle. The local special products could not be delivered outwards, while the outside goods could be hardly brought in. The undeveloped transportation had hindered local economic development greatly, and aggravated the poverty for dozens of years.
In 2015, with responding to the initiative of the Hunan Provincial Government, Wuling dispatched a working team to reside in Yuping Village, helping the  villagers to get rid of poverty. Over the past three years, Wuling has invested 3.552 million CNY, and coordinated local governmental and social investment of 9.5 million CNY, to support the infrastructure construction in Yuping Village. The achievements include: two reservoirs and 5km irrigation canals were maintained; 11km muddy roads inside the Village were concreted, connecting all the households; 408 new waste collection stations and a new clinic were set up; 31 dilapidated houses and Yuping Primary School were renovated; a 60kW Solar Power Plant was built for power supply; about 27ha. of Cyclocarya Paliurus plantation were developed; and three new impounding reservoirs were built to draw mountain spring water into every household. So far, 487 villagers have been lifted out of poverty, and more than 1,200 villagers live a better life.
With strong support from Wuling and due to great efforts of the working team in the past three years, Yuping Village has achieved outstanding changes with sound infrastructure facilities and transportation condition. Wuling’s efforts in targeted poverty alleviation are highly appreciated by the local residents, the local authorities and the Provincial governments.
