Poverty Alleviation through Entrepreneurship

Author(s): Tehubijuluw Zacharias, Yusriadi Yusriadi, Firman H, Marlia Rianti

Poverty is an example of a social problem exacerbated by economic factors. Poverty is a severe social problem facing the Government of Indonesia. Even though it has worked for decades to free itself from poverty, reality shows that Indonesia has not been able to break the shackles of the poverty crisis until now. A group of community members is below the poverty line if the income of that community member is inadequate to meet basic needs, such as food, clothing, and shelter. Currently, there are also constant demands for entrepreneurship. The high level of competition for jobs is one of the causes. The government has even begun to pave the way for an easy start to entrepreneurship. You may argue that entrepreneurship is one of the drivers of the economy of the country. As a result, the government is helping many entrepreneurs start entrepreneurship so that the unemployment rate is dropping, and the country's economy is getting better. Poverty alleviation is one of the government's programs. Poverty in the era of COVID-19 has risen, so entrepreneurship projects are required to boost the economy. This research uses qualitative approaches, a literature methodology, data sources using secondary data from linked articles and books, data processing strategies through minimizing, presenting, and drawing conclusions. The findings revealed that the group's involvement in entrepreneurial activities was very beneficial in contributing to their resources. Information Communication Technology (ICT) during the COVID-19 pandemic was a significant contributor to entrepreneurial activities. This article's innovation, the transition to an online market, would be more successful than a face-to-face company.
