Updated 10:48, 26-May-2023

Nurimengul Qasim lives in a small village in Yengisar County, Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. She is the first woman to learn to operate a drone in her village, with the support of a workgroup committed to local economic growth.

Qasim makes money by flying the drone to spray pesticides and fertilizer on the local farmers' crops. This approach to crop protection is much more efficient than the traditional way. It also gives her and her family an additional source of income.
