Moving fast, the Program Implementing Management (PMO) Pre-Employment Card immediately submitted all pre-work alumni data to the Coordinating Minister for the Economy.
For former recipients of the Pre-Work Card program, the government facilitated them to get people’s business credit (KUR).
This government decision was taken as part of the National Economic Recovery Program (PEN) in providing an easy and inexpensive financing scheme.
But not having additional collateral or additional collateral is not enough.
This is one of the directions of the Coordinating Minister for Economic Affairs Airlangga Hartarto in the context of community economic empowerment and entrepreneurial development.
The government encourages sustainable empowerment schemes.
One of them is through the facilitation of the people’s business credit program for entrepreneurial alumni who are part of the Pre-Employment Card Program who have been laid off.
Based on this directive, currently a Minutes of Handover of Entrepreneurial Data for Entrepreneurs Participants in the Pre-Employment Card Program who were laid off have been signed.
“We provide this data to the Coordinating Ministry for the Economy to become a follow-up program or a graduation program for recipients of the Pre-Employment Card Program after they become entrepreneurs,” said Executive Director of Implementing Pre-Employment Card Management, Denni Puspa Purbasari, in his official statement, quoted on Saturday (6/3/2021 ).
This activity was carried out as a form of support for the pre-employment card alumni who were laid off to be able to obtain a Super Micro KUR, which is a form of empowerment for the pre-employment card alumni after becoming a pre-employment card participant.
Denni Puspa Purbasari said that the Pre-Employment Card Implementation Team coordinated the policy of giving KUR to alumni of the pre-employment cards who were laid off.
Because it also supports the future growth of the Pre-Employment Card Program.
As of December 7, 2020, there are 43.8 million applicants on the official website of the Pre-Employment Card Program.
This number comes from 514 districts and cities from 34 provinces in Indonesia.
Meanwhile, from batches 1-11, there were already 5.98 million people who received pre-employment cards, with 5.23 million of whom had received incentives.
Based on information from the Implementing Management of the Pre-Employment Card Program, there are approximately 19,500 alumni who claim to be entrepreneurs.
This shows that the Pre-Employment Card program is also capable of creating new entrepreneurs.
“The Pre-Employment Card Management Statistics show that 35 percent of Pre-Employment Card recipients who were previously unemployed became employed, where 17 percent became entrepreneurs,” he said.
As is well known, the Covid-19 pandemic has not only impacted the health sector but also hit the economic sector.
During the pandemic, the vulnerable groups to the poor appear due to loss of work / income and at the same time this group is not covered as the target recipient of any social assistance.
Therefore, the Government has transformed the Pre-Employment Card Program policy into semi-social assistance as part of the social protection sector PEN.
It is hoped that with this policy transformation, the public can take advantage of this program by taking various job skills training and entrepreneurship that can become a living provision during and after the pandemic.
Deputy for the Coordination of the Digital Economy, Manpower and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises of the Coordinating Ministry for Economic Affairs, Rudy Salahuddin, also commented on this matter.
“This is a sustainability program for friends who are already pre-service card alumni who are currently entrepreneurs and want to move up in class, not only to the micro class, but also to the small and middle class,” he said.
“If business actors from the Pre-Employment Card alumni want to improve the quality and scale of their production, they will need additional capital.
And the KUR program in this case can be used to increase the scale of their business in the future, “he continued.
On the other hand, it is hoped that the empowerment of the Pre-Employment Card Program alumni is expected to be an effort to help the growth of national entrepreneurs.
By doing so, it is hoped that the targets set out in the 2020-2024 RPJMN are achieved, namely the national entrepreneurship ratio of 3.9 percent and the growth of new entrepreneurs of 4 percent in 2024.
