One of the cornerstones for developing a country’s economy is the MSME sector. In Indonesia, there are currently more than 50 million MSMEs operating. They contribute significantly to the gross domestic products and the economic growth in general yearly.
To optimize their strength, MSMEs can employ a fellowship approach to working with one another. In regards to this, ‘Sahabat UMKM’ was established as a community of Indonesian MSMEs which facilitates them in gaining beneficial access to networks, leading to fruitful partnerships and their boosted confidence when entering the bigger business ecosystem.
In ‘Sahabat UMKM’, Indonesian MSME actors are able to improve capabilities and explore opportunities to cultivate their business through various activities, networking, and experience-sharing events, professional forums, and knowledge-sharing programs. Its goals are to foster MSMEs’ business progress in the near future and to expand market networks for their products, as well as improving the competitiveness of their members through mentoring, training, and coaching activities.
One of the missions of ‘Sahabat UMKM’ is to proliferate digital literacy of MSMEs heading into the 4th Digital Revolution. The digital market holds the most imaginable opportunities for MSMEs to hunt for in order to expand their outreach. ‘Sahabat UMKM’ also supports MSME actors in finding the right channels that they need by bridging MSMEs with the government and private institutions.
Likewise, Tokoin intends to provide MSMEs with bigger opportunities to develop and widen their networks and ecosystem. Aiming for the same vision, Tokoin and ‘Sahabat UMKM’ are tying up to launch more and more MSMEs into the modern business ecosystem. Given the conducive backdrop conditions, Tokoin and ‘Sahabat UMKM’ are also ready to embrace more newcomers in the MSME sector as their emergence signals a transformation into a highly innovative society, supporting the nation’s economic progress.
