    Urban expansion converts rural villages lead to an agglomeration of settlement. Nowadays, the kampung nelayan Kenjeran area are dense by the housing estates. The existence of “kenjeran” fishing neighborhood is neglected by the city planners. Actually the Kampung Improvement Programme had given good infrastructure. Unfortunately the KIP was conducted in generally way without considering the specific type of community, like fishing community. They need place for drying up the fishes, but this main needs do not covered yet. As a consequence, they still use part of the alley or even they make stack top of the small canal. Thus the potentiality of fishing community is not appreciated yet as the potential that based on natural livelihood and indeed showing the characteristics of the sustainable livelihood as neighborhood. Since the industrial revolution, people have switched from craft products to mass-produced goods. This was due primarily to price, but also to the poor quality of craft production for popular use. Now handmade goods produced for the wealthy has become the stronghold of craftsmanship. If demands of the tourist are added, this may provide the basis for a vigorous sector and a revival interest in indigenous crafts. In this regards, artisan centers or villages specializing in certain types of craft production will help keep the creativity alive. In addition, to activities aimed at increasing the supply of handcrafts goods, there must also be efforts devoted to ensuring that architects and designers fully explore the possibility of using local designs and motifs in their goods and shop houses as well. This study shows how the attempt of empowering the fishing community as tourism informal settlement (Kampung wisata) can contribute to the improvement of the present generation and future as well, including culture, social and economic dimensions. By empowering women in the fishing community means we move towards greater social equity both moral and practical reasons. Yet, it means we improve the quality of life of fishing community while living within the carrying capacity of the global ecosystem. This study explores three factors that empowering the fishing livelihood. The first part exposes the women role fostering sustainable community, second, addressing on the “Kenjeran” fishing neighborhood as informal settlement with its potentiality, and last part discussing how small homebased enterprises for fisherman family help to create the sustainable livehood.
