Kim Boi district of Hoa Binh province has identified the movement to encourage farmers to emulate in production and business, unite to help each other get rich and reduce poverty sustainably as one of the three key emulation movements, according to Chairman of the district Farmers' Association Nguyen Manh Hung.

In recent years, the farmers’ associations at all levels in the district have done a good job of disseminating and encouraging members and farmers to innovate their mindset and change their ways of doing, effectively exploit the potential and strengths of capital, labour, and land for investment in production and business, thus gradually escaping poverty and getting rich. Through the movement, many farming households have developed into businesses and cooperatives in agricultural production and business, creating jobs and stable incomes for hundreds of rural labourers.

Do Cat Luc, member of Sao Bay commune Farmers' Association (Kim Boi district), develops combined production model that brings high economic efficiency.

Since 2015, the family of Do Cat Luc, a member of the Farmers’ Association of Sao Bac hamlet, Sao Bay commune, has removed mixed gardens to expand a combined production model. Luc shared that with a total area of about five hectares, his family is currently growing three hectares of acacia, raising pigs for meat, and chickens and ducks for eggs under the canopy of trees; and uses about two hectares of water surface to raise fish. In 2023, the family's total income reached about 800 million VND (32,200 USD). In addition, his family creates stable jobs for four local people with an average salary of 5 million VND a person a month.

In 2023, Kim Boi district had 10,846 households registered to meet the standards of good production and business households at all levels, of which 5,971 were recognised, including 10 at the central level, and 202 at the provincial level and 10 households at the district level.

To create conditions for member households to gain access to loans, the farmers' associations at all levels in the district have received and well managed entrusted loans from the district Bank for Social Policies, with a total outstanding debt of 138.4 billion VND and 3,428 borrowers.
