As of the end of 2019, the per capita net income of farmers exceeded 12,000 yuan.

The village leaders attach great importance to poverty alleviation work. The District Political and Legal Committee and the District Justice Bureau selected 3 excellent cadres to form a village support team, understanding people’s needs, solving practical difficulties, and laying a good foundation for poverty alleviation in Shuangwen Village. Twenty-five government officials from the two units provided 46 registered poor households with one-to-one assistance, making sure that each household has a responsible person for poverty alleviation.

Developing collective economy through a village + enterprise model 

Shuangwen Village regards the development of collective economy as an important measure to promote poverty alleviation, and uses resource advantages to tap development potential and promote vigorous development of village's collective economy.

In October 2016, Xiong Feng established Xiong Feng Culture and Art Industrial Park in the village. In 2019, Shuangwen Village relied on the park to establish Xiongfeng Sculpture Art Professional Cooperative, which adopts the "village + enterprise" cooperation model. That is, the village invested funds and commissioned Xiong Feng to operate. The village received a certain share of dividends, and 78 people from 22 households in the village also received dividends. The Sculpture Cooperative not only revitalized idle resources, but also brought considerable collective economic income, and created jobs for registered poor households.

At the end of 2019, the 2 million poverty alleviation funds obtained by Shuangwen Village and Shuangxing Village will be invested in the Sculpture Collective through the share dividend model. The collective economic income of the two villages has again been greatly increased, and the lives of registered poor households have also been highly secured.
