This study aims to reveal the role of women, especially mothers, in supporting the 1000 HPK program in an economic perspective in Banyuwangi (tribe of “Osing”). The women are required to survive in conditions of economic limitations, on the other hand, they are expected to meet the nutritional needs of mothers and babies. This study uses a qualitative method with research samples of mothers in Banyuwangi subdistrict. Data retrieval is done by in-depth interviews with pregnant, lactating mothers, and mothers who have children under five. The results of this study found a local savings model coordinated by “posyandu” cadre groups to help solve financial problems in the society. This savings model is called "arisan". Furthermore, financial needs from the early pregnancy to childbirth and toddlers are quite high. This is because they have to do some traditional rituals, of course, it requires a fee, during pregnancy to toddler. The "arisan" is one of the solutions made by women to solve financial problems in relation to nutrient intake which indirectly impacts the bright generation.
