Jokowi Distributes Presidential Assistance to 2021 MSMEs. It is hoped that the assistance of Rp. 1.2 million can help MSME actors add business capital and survive the impact of the pandemic.

The value of the presidential ban that was given was IDR 1.2 million. According to Jokowi, all business actors, both in small to large ratios, are in dire straits due to the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak. This is mainly because there is a new variation called delta.

"Recipients of productive presidential assistance for micro businesses, whether they come in person or online, I know you are all in a difficult situation right now, right? Really hard, right?” said Jokowi at the 2021 Micro Business Productive Presidential Assistance Award.

He explained that the government has distributed funds in the amount of Rp. 15.3 trillion to divide BPUM this year. Assistance will be given to 12.8 million MSME actors.

"There are 12.8 million MSME actors in the country. Start sharing today. We hope this will drive the economy,” said Jokowi.

It was found that the amount of assistance for MSMEs this year was only IDR 1.2 million per beneficiary. The figure is down from 2020 which amounted to IDR 2.4 million per person.

Initially, Deputy for Micro Enterprises of the Ministry of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Eddy Satriya explained that there were many requirements to obtain a BPUM. First, micro business actors must show business information letters from RT and RW. The business info can also be in the form of a business registration number (NIB).

Second, micro business actors should not be obtaining people's business credit facilities (KUR). In other words, micro business actors must be separated from KUR to obtain BLT.

BPUM distribution will be given in 2 stages. First, the government will distribute it to 9.8 million with a budget of Rp. 11.76 trillion. Second, the government will distribute it to 3 million with a budget of Rp. 3.6 trillion.

The former mayor of Solo explained that the epidemic had made the economic situation difficult for several business actors, including small, medium and large business actors.

However, Jokowi reminded that if this did not only happen in Indonesia, business people around the world would feel the obstacle. This situation occurred at the same time as the increase in the spread of the virus which reduced the purchasing power of residents to the point where businesses were hindered.

Because of that, Jokowi asked several business actors to work harder. "Not scaring, but when will this corona virus end? The WHO (World Health Organization) cannot predict either," he said.

Social Assistance to MSMEs


Last year, the government gave BPUM an amount of IDR 2.4 million per MSME business actor. Meanwhile, in 2021, there will be a change in the nominal amount of MSME assistance through the Minister of Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises Regulation Number 2 of 2021.

The figure decreased to Rp. 1.2 million and was given one at a time. BPUM recipients are MSME actors who have never received BPUM and MSME actors who received assistance last year.
