Create stable jobs locally
Ma Thi Ho is a mountainous, borderline, and extremely difficult commune of Muong Cha district, Dien Bien province with complicated terrain, divided by many streams and steep slopes. The whole commune has 841 households, corresponding to 4,463 people, of which the Mong ethnic group accounted for 98.5%, the Kinh ethnic group accounted for 1.2%, the Thai ethnic group accounted for 0.3%; poverty rate is still high (53.85%). People and young people in the commune are very difficult to live and work, mainly rely on agriculture, so the whole year only 3-4 months of labor for planting and harvesting, the remaining 8-9 months of the year. is idle, do not know what to do.
Therefore, many youth union members, especially in remote and remote villages, invite each other to work far away for a whole year before returning home a few times, leading to many heartbreaking cases, wives and children being abused by strangers, people, and children. bad use, fraud across the border, not only disrupting family happiness but also making it difficult to attract and gather youth union members to participate in Union – Association activities. This is also a loophole for hostile forces to plot “peaceful evolution” and take advantage of ethnic and religious issues to incite the people and youth union members to migrate freely, propagate illegal conduct and break the law.
Up to now, the cattle-breeding model of the Secretary of the Ma Thi Ho Commune Union has grown to nearly 20 cows with a total value of 600-700 million VND, not to mention that every 5-6 years, 1-2 cows are sold every year. for an income of 50-60 million VND (equivalent to 4-5 million VND/month).
The Secretary of the Commune Youth Union Mua A Ninh shared that in the general difficult conditions of the commune, there are still favorable natural conditions, such as a large grazing field, plenty of grass, a suitable climate… for livestock development to develop. cattle. Moreover, most households are engaged in agricultural production, so the model of raising buffaloes and cows is very reasonable, both for plowing power and fertilizer, and for high-quality, high-priced meat products for sale to consumers. use.
According to Season A Ninh, due to the increasing demand for food by consumers, the implementation of this model is essentially creating jobs and stable incomes in the locality, helping households to gradually improve. improve life with clean and safe products for the market.
Talking about her husbandry development, Mua A Ninh said that in 2008, her family borrowed 10 million VND from the Social Policy Bank to buy a female buffalo to raise, and in 2012 it developed three more. Seeing that the model was effective, in 2013 and 2016, the Bank for Social Policies continued to lend another 80 million to buy 02 sows and 03 breeding cows.
“Currently, the family has 11 buffaloes and 08 cows big and small of all kinds. Over the past few years, thanks to the money to sell cattle, he has repaired his house, built a bath with hot and cold water, built a clean septic tank, and expanded the area of cultivation fields,” said the youth leader of Ma Thi commune. Ho said proudly.
Wishing young people to have access to preferential loans
Take me back to visit the house built in the traditional Hmong style, spacious, clean, sturdy and decent living facilities such as television, refrigerator, washing machine, sewing machine…, just for the chickens, With more than 100 swans to eat, A Ninh and his wife have just confided: “raising chickens, swans and even black pigs is only to improve daily meals and during holidays and New Year, not to earn income for shopping and spending. Consumption mainly depends on cattle raising”.
Winter here is very cold, harmful cold and many frosts make weeds unable to grow, causing the herd to lack food, plus a lot of humidity, so cattle are susceptible to diseases such as pasteurellosis, foot-and-mouth disease. Therefore, A Ninh’s family and some youth union members have actively switched to caged husbandry in combination with planting more elephant grass and collecting straw for storage when the weather is wet, cold, and harmful. prolonged. The livestock barn is spacious, airy, clean, periodically sprayed with disinfectant around the barn and vaccinated for cattle.
Concerned about the fact that most young people in the commune lack livelihoods to improve their lives in their homeland, leading to difficulties in attracting young people to participate in Union – Association activities, Secretary of the Ma Thi Commune Union Ho expressed his wish that the Party Committee, the government and the Bank for Social Policies continue to create favorable conditions for the People and youth union members to access preferential loans to develop animal husbandry, improve living standards, and contribute to the development of animal husbandry. poverty reduction and new rural construction.
Season A Ninh said that the commune currently has 380 youth union members, mainly working in swidden fields, of which nearly 100 people have a spacious grazing area but lack investment capital to buy seed, so after a period of time working in the fields, they often do farming. invite each other to work far away. “Besides, the youth union members must also change their awareness, give up the thinking of expecting, rely on subsidies and support from the State, and must be self-conscious and proactive in rising out of poverty to get out of poverty. there is a chance to change the current situation,” A Ninh said firmly.
In fact, in the commune, there are 4-5 households of youth union members who own hundreds of millions of dong worth of buffaloes and cows, have stable annual income and become well-known households in the whole commune, typically Cho A household. Sieve (Ma Thi Ho village 2), Grade A Ly (Ho Chim 2)…
It is known that with an exemplary role in attracting youth solidarity as well as implementing the policy of 1 + 1 (each staff member and member helps and attracts 1 young person) in the spirit of the Resolution of the Union Congress. Class XI, Secretary Mua A Ninh supported a female buffalo for Chang A Chinh (29 years old) in Hang Liea village who graduated from university but did not have a stable job to pilot farming to have the power to plow for his family. , when the buffalo gives birth, the brothers split in half. The season of A Ninh is expected that if this model is favorable, breeding is good, it will be replicated for other energetic young families to raise and support them to overcome difficult circumstances and rise to economic development. , improving life.
From here, it opens a new direction to help many youth union members with the will and energy to get a job and a stable income right in their homeland, without having to go far to work, maintain family happiness, create favorable for the organization of the Union – the Association to attract more members to participate in activities, contributing to the construction of villages, maintaining the security and sovereignty of the strong border region./.
