This article is based on research on fishermen in Pasia Nan Tigo urban village Padang West Sumatra. Most of fishermen in Pasia Nan Tig are small-scale and they live in poverty. So far, there are many empowerment programs which conducted by both government and non-governmental organizations to improve the welfare of fishermen. But these programs have not succeeded in improving the welfare of fishermen that live in poverty. This study tries to see the causes of difficulty in improving the living standards of fishermen despite many empowerment programs undertaken and potentials owned by fishermen. The study was conducted in an urban village using qualitative research methods to do fieldwork by doing with observasi and in-depth interviews.

Poor fishermen did not had a bargaining position they just accept what the government or elite programs do in their homes. To improve the welfare of fishermen it is important to see the potential of the fishermen and see their aspirations. The potential of the fishermen is that they are urban fishermen, where the city has adequate facilities and infrastructure for fishermen's progress. Education children who can be better than parents and the wives who can develop their own business to increase family income.
