Data collection techniques in this study use interviews, observation, documentation. The analysis technique used is qualitative analysis. Based on the results of research and discussion can be concluded conclusions in the effort of community empowerment in the economic field through this capital aspect are: (1) how the provision of capital assistance does not cause dependence on the community; (2) how to solve this aspect of capital is done through the creation of a new conducive system of micro businesses, small businesses, and medium-sized businesses to gain access in financial institutions; (3) how the scheme of use or capital allocation policy is not trapped in a subsistence economy or poor economy. These three things are important to be solved together. The core of empowerment is community independence.
