Processing of agricultural product resources by increasing added value is used as a strategy to improve the economy, as was done by the Women Farmers Group (KWT) 'Vera Sejati' which processes aloe vera into food/beverage processed Aloe vera. The purpose of this study is to determine the structure of costs, revenues, profits, and to determine the added value obtained from processed aloe vera at KWT 'Vera Sejati' in Katongan Village, Nglipar District, Gunung Kidul Regency. The basic method used is descriptive analytical. The respondents of this research are the owner and 2 employees. The method used as a value-added analysis tool is the Hayami Method. The results showed that fixed costs were Rp 50,166.67/month, variable costs were Rp 1,463,200.00/month, while the total cost was Rp 1,513,366.67/month. The total revenue obtained from processed aloe Vera is Rp. 3,060,000.00/month, and the profit obtained is Rp. 1,546,633.33/month. The added value obtained from processed aloe vera is Rp. 44,443.29/kg of raw material in the form of aloe vera of 24 kg. The added value is obtained from the result of reducing the output value, which is Rp. 131,443.29/kg with an input cost of Rp. 7,000.00/kg and the contribution of other inputs/supporting costs of Rp. 80.000,00/kg. The added value ratio of processed aloe vera is 33.81%. This shows that the added value is still relatively low because it is still below 50%.
