Maytursun maysadi, a peasant in Yutian county: a dream for a better life
Maytursun maysadi got up at 5 am, and the rain did not stop in the small village where he had been sleeping.
He got up early with his wife to load sheepskins onto his truck. Then he left, heading to the Hetian wholesale market before 9 am. After that, he would load 150 cases of fruits before driving back to Yutian.
He made 1,400 yuan from the job. He used to do the journey once a week now he runs his business every day.
He said it was because he had moved into a new home, sponsored by the local government, which only cost him 25,000 yuan.
There was a festive atmosphere in his house - he used red carpet, a red sofa cover and red curtains to decorate the new house. He said: "I am very happy after moving in and I wish life would be better."
