Poverty is a problem faced in every country. One of them is in Indonesia. The poverty level in cities in Indonesia is still quite high. One city that gets enough attention is the City of Palembang. There are around 9.46% of the population of Palembang City below the poverty line. This is something that needs attention. If seen, Palembang has good potential. One potential is that the government proclaims Palembang as an area of sports tourism. This declaration will have a major impact especially on the economic sector. Poverty reduction needs the role of all parties, both government and private. There are several solutions that can be done to alleviate poverty, one of which is community empowerment. Universities can participate in empowerment activities through the activities of Tri Dharma, especially dedication dharma. In this article, two examples of service activities oriented towards community empowerment are discussed. The concept of these two activities is continuous training. The training target is the people who enter open slaughter and have little opportunity to get a job, namely housewives and mothers who already have micro businesses. The training model is tailored to the needs of the community, including training in business management and training in making handicrafts. With this training, it is expected that these mothers can have good insights related to entrepreneurship. And in the end can open a business and help increase household income.
