Poverty is a problem that still becomes an obstacle until now in the development process. In overcoming the problem of poverty in society, it is necessary to have a planned, integrated and comprehensive resolution in all aspects of life. Poverty is one of the social symptoms that gives various kinds of gaps in people's lives, especially for fishing community groups. This fact is also found in the community in Pajala Village, Maginti Sub-district, West Muna Regency, where the people only rely on marine results as a reinforcement of all aspects of the family's economic resilience. The situation of the sea which is erratic and changes every time has an impact on the economic condition of fishermen in Pajala Village that is becoming unstable. On the other hand, the low quality of education and their lack of access to the outside world make the Pajala Village fishing community increasingly left behind and trapped in poverty. The poverty of fishing community in Pajala Village, Maginti Sub-district, West Muna Regency is not only caused by one factor, but is also caused by several key factors so that the poverty has not been properly addressed until now. The root of the problems of poverty in fishing communities needs to be systematically explored in order to produce a concept that is truly capable of lifting and improving the standard of living of fishing communities, especially those in Pajala Village, Maginti Sub-district, West Muna Regency.
