In recent years, the Agricultural Bank of China (ABC) in Hebei province has been offering loans to buy solar power equipment in Wuqiang county of Hengshui city, to help lift local residents out of poverty.
The loans, which are targeted at poverty-stricken local residents, are used to pay the costs of purchasing solar power generation equipment.
Solar panels installed on the roofs of houses will help residents save money on their utility bills as they can generate their own power.
