Abstract

The current condition of the world, with the outbreak of the COVID-19 corona virus, has a serious impact on the lives of all people, both economically and socially. Women who initially had jobs, but with the outbreak of the pandemic since the end of 2019, this has caused them to lose their income due to termination of work by the employer. This condition is used mainly for women who have lost their jobs amid the urgency to make ends meet, with the condition of switching only to taking care of children in online learning activities at home. In this case, self-reliance is needed for a woman in dealing with this problem. Independent in the sense of the word not drifting into adversity due to a pandemic that is not clear in the end, able to stand alone, empowering all abilities possessed in meeting all life needs.
