In Indonesia, the HIV-AIDS case is one of the sensitive issues in which the spread of this case continues to increase every year. The problems of people living with HIV-AIDS (PLWHA) consist of physical dimensions, economic dimensions, and social dimensions. A potential intervention model that can be done to help break the vicious circle for PLWHA sufferers is economic empowerment. So it is necessary to support microeconomic finance in carrying out conventional financial practices which can later have implications for health and economic success for PLWHA through collaboration. PLWHA faces conditions of disadvantage in the form of stigma, physical decline, and economic problems. For this reason, it is necessary to have an appropriate coping strategy from PLWHA in the form of empowering micro-business economies. The implementation of economic empowerment needs to require a good support system in the form of collaboration in which the family, government, and NGOs help carry out economic empowerment. The research method used is a literature review. The journal criteria that have been selected by researchers in this study discuss PLWHA, the existence of similarities in research in the form of coping strategies for economic empowerment, as well as being relevant and accredited. The results of the analysis identified PLWHA in overcoming the economic problems they face can be assisted through a coping strategy that focuses on problems (problem-focused coping) by involving collaborators in overcoming these problems through economic empowerment.
