The head of Tanjungsari Village, Tanjungsari sub-district, Bogor Regency in his program wants to
improve the economy of its citizens, currently villagers still depend on the economy for agricultural products,
however there are 8.5% or 118 family heads are MSME actors. The location of Tanjungsari Village which is
only 75 km from the Indonesian Capital City makes this village's advantage to access raw materials and
market MSME products. Currently, the type of MSME industry in Tanjungsari Village is engaged in the
industry of bags, wallets, sandals, shoes, wood lathes, wood products, and coffee with an average turnover
or gross income of IDR 50 million/month. The majority of raw materials for the bags, wallets, sandals, and
shoes industries are imported from Jakarta, by utilizing the remaining materials from manufacturers in
Jakarta to be processed into other products, as well as other raw materials. The problems experienced by
MSME actors often run out of business capital because all business turnover is used for daily household
consumption. Every business activity has not been recorded so that it is not possible to plan for competitive

MSMEs stated that the training conducted by the community service team was beneficial for their business
