SEBI School of Islamic Economics (STEI SEBI) held a Sharing Session through the Indonesia Young Entrepreneur Summit (IYES) program on Friday (12/23/2022) offline at the STEI SEBI meeting room on the 2nd floor. The Sharing Session presented speakers from PT Sucofindo, namely Mr. Nuri Hidayat, ST, M.S.M (Head of TJSL Unit of PT Sucofindo) with the theme "Strengthening MSEs through the TJSL (Environmental Social Responsibility) Program of PT Sucofindo" and moderated by Heri Setiawan, SE as IYES Project Manager and Owner of Es Pingu.
In his presentation, Mr. Nuri emphasized that being an entrepreneur must be tried, installing a clear intention. Unlike working with a clear salary, because business is not yet clear but entrepreneurs get rich faster. Then Mr. Nuri also said that 9 of the 10 doors of sustenance were in trading or buying and selling. Mr. Nuri directed IYES awardee students to always enjoy the process and be consistent with the path they choose to become Entrepreneurs as in the IYES program, they are expected to be present and grow in the community.
Mr. Nuri also explained the role and purpose of his position as Head of TJSL (Environmental Social Responsibility) towards strengthening MSEs through the TJSL program, namely to provide business assistance, PUMK (MSE Funding) which according to current rules and regulations collaborates with Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) as the appointed bank to assess and disburse funds for assistance programs from SOEs. Currently, not all SOEs have done this, but next year, namely 2023, this regulation will be implemented simultaneously, said Mr. Nuri.
One of the fostered partners of PT Sucofindo is Inacraft whose business is currently growing in one way is to take part in exhibitions or exhibitions at national and international levels at JCC (Jakarta Convention Center). The capacity-building training program that is usually carried out by PT Sucofindo for MSEs is Digital Marketing Training and Halal Certification which is given free of charge or grants to MSE actors.
Kak Heri as moderator has summarized several important points for IYES awardees who want to join as PT Sucofindo's fostered partners including submitting institutional proposals, proposed Cost Budget Plans, other administrative completeness, and participating in various programs from PT Sucofindo.
Answering the question of how MSEs can become fostered partners of PT Sucofindo, "Capital is paired with coaching, after being given capital, we will build it, so that the capital does not just evaporate," explained Mr. Nuri.
He added, "The business must have been running for 6 months, and there is potential to grow, by making NIB (Business Identification Number) and a short proposal to be surveyed by the team from PT Sucofindo".
