Abstract

Every country must have problems that have been, are being, and will be faced. These problems arise from various sides of the life of the people in it. In this case, social problems are often considered to be complex issues that become the estuary of all the problems that arise. This research is included in the type of qualitative descriptive research which is intended to describe one variable, symptoms, and circumstances of the implementation of the OVOP Program in community empowerment, especially farmer groups in Indonesia. One of the strategies of the Indonesian government through the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs of the Republic of Indonesia in community empowerment is implementing the One Village One Product (OVOP) Program by the Presidential Instruction of the Republic of Indonesia Number 6 of 2007 dated 08 policy regarding accelerating the development of the real sector and empowering MSMEs. Based on the data the author obtained from interviews with five asparagus farmers who used to be traditional farmers, the average traditional farmer in the village used to farm plant species such as cassava, oranges, coffee, of course, the sales results were still low. In general, the authors observe that the OVOP program implemented in the village has been going well, as evidenced by the increase in the income of the asparagus farmers.
