As he gets too old to take care of himself, he relies on Songbai to look after him. However, Songbai also faces financial pressure since he has to support his parents and children. In addition, policies to benefit the poor people such as Peng Guochen’s old-age pensions and the precise poverty alleviation subsidies have not been implemented by the local government.
