Based on data from Central Bureau of Statistics, the population of Indonesia in 2016 amounted to 258.71 million people, consisting of 128.72 million women and 129.99 million men. Thus, women need to be empowered to increase their competence so that they can contribute in the national economy. The aim of this paper is to analyze the impact of women's empowerment into a sustainable local business community through Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). The qualitative research methodology was conducted in this study. Data collection is conducted through in-depth interview with the related women. The informants in this study were the women who were involved in CSR program located in Kampung Kue, Surabaya City. This research uses the theory of women empowerment by Nursahbani Katjasungkana in discussion of Strategic Plan Team of National Development. The results show that women empowerment programs have a positive impact on women's self-development in Kampung Kue. Women become skilled and have the ability to become independent entrepreneurs. Thus, women have additional income and are able to increase household incomes. In addition, the slum neighborhoods in Kampung Kue previously became a productive local business community due to the empowerment program.
