Wang Ping, 25, lives in a village of Luzhou city in Southwest China's Sichuan province. After graduation from nurse's training in 2010, she worked as a nurse, and even opened a village hospital.

In early 2014, Wang learned on the Internet that raising black goats offered a way to get rich, so she went to Jilin and Guizhou provinces to learn how to take care of black goats.

After that, Wang raised 15,000 yuan ($2,348), bought 18 ewes and two rams in Fushun county and changed her occupation from village "doctor" to shepherdess.

Now Wang has more than 90 black goats and is very confident about the future.

"The winter is coming; several restaurants have ordered my goats. Every goat can sell for 2,000 yuan; I don't worry about the sales," Wang said.
