Abstract

Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) are one of the pillars of the nation's economy. Therefore various strategies have been pursued to develop them so that they are able to contribute to welfare, provide employment opportunities and alleviate poverty. One of these strategies, which is implemented by the government, is the availability of assistance for MSME actors through the Integrated Business Service Center (PLUT) program and Small and Medium Enterprise Cooperatives (KUKM). By using qualitative research methods and literature studies, this study aims to determine the extent of the participation of these facilitators in the development of MSMEs in Bintan Regency, especially micro-enterprises and examine the impact of PLUT and KUKM assistance on MSME development in Bintan Regency. This research is expected to be a reference in efforts to develop MSMEs through mentoring and open opportunities for further research on the appropriate and optimal pattern of MSME assistance in developing MSMEs.
