Abstract

This comprehensive review paper examines the enduring influence of women’s involvement in poultry farming on economic empowerment, well-being, and community development. Drawing from a wide array of academic sources, the study explores the sustained economic impact of women’s participation, the evolving well-being outcomes, and the community development initiatives driven by empowered women in poultry farming. The Resource-Based Theory emerges as a pivotal framework, elucidating how access to resources enhances economic empowerment. The findings indicate a positive trajectory in income generation, access to resources, physical and mental health improvements, social connectedness, and community infrastructure development. This research underscores the importance of supporting women in poultry farming through targeted policies and programs to leverage the long-term benefits for individuals and communities.
