Kangle New Homes in Shiquanhe Town, Gar County, Ngari Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region is the local poverty alleviation resettlement site. In 2017, 3,295 people of 714 household from five counties including Gerze County, Coqen County, Ge'gyai County, Gar County, and Rutog County moved here in succession in order to start a new life. After moving in their new homes, local residents found stable jobs in poverty alleviation industries such as the Kangle New Homes Garment and Carpet Processing Factory and the Gar County Standardized Dairy Cow Breeding Base, thus achieving increased incomes for their families by using their diligent hands. 

The Kangle New Homes Garment and Carpet Processing Factory was invested and constructed in 2018.

The monthly salary of staff workers is about 3,000 yuan (about 428 US dollars).
