SDGs number 5 is a goal for women to increase their participation in the country’s economic development. There are many sectors where women can develop and have an impact on a country’s development. Among the many existing development sectors, agriculture is one of the sectors with the most contribution to Indonesia’s GDP. It is from the fact that Indonesia is a country that is rich in natural resources. However, there are still many Indonesian farmers, especially women, who live in poverty. Therefore, empowerment is an alternative to improve their standard of living. This study will examine the empowerment model among women farmers, at least in the agricultural sector in the area where they live. The research method used is a literature study. The results will show the pattern of empowerment formed among groups of women farmers in several regions in Indonesia. This pattern will explain how empowerment developed so that the participation of women farmers in economic development can increase in the future.
