Entrepreneurship, Financing, Islamic Education, Economic Activities.


One of the contemporary issues concerning islamic education is when it is associated with employment, excellent quality of human resources that are able to compete on a regional, national or international scale. Human resources who become product of islamic education are expected to be able to master a broad knowledge, because all competitors have same opportunity, so for those who can not use and take advantage of existing opportunities, they will certainly be left behind. Thus, educational institutions are expected to conduct effort in order to stabilize and improve the quality of sustainable education that is reflective and reformative (Amar, 2009).

Educational institutions should be able to prepare educated human resources to face various challenges of. The world of education is not enough to master only theories, but also able to apply it in social life of society. Such education, later known as entrepreneurship is soul of courage and willingness to face problem of life, creative soul to find solutions and solve problems, independent soul and not depend on others (Rahmat, 2011).

Understanding islamic education comprehensively, certainly not just an educational institution that does transformation of science merely, but there must be different elements and variables namely transfer of value and skills to learners in order to create harmonization of spiritual and material needs of learners (world and hereafter).

Because of demands and needs of community, management and development of educational institutions of course become priority program to create qualified, superior and competitive human beings, which in turn can accelerate the growth, and progress of a country. One of educational leaders Philip Kottler was quoted by Viethzal Rivai Zainal, in his research stated that formal education has a very strategic role in economic development of a country (Zainal & Bahar, 2013).

Literature Review

Singapore and South Korea has been progressing rapidly within 25 years. Both countries position themselves same with developed countries with income per capita more than 20,000 US Dollars per year. With qualified education and training, these two countries are performing a tremendous quantum leap, thereby being named newly industrialized countries (Zainal & Bahar, 2013). Currently education is seen as a future investment, it becomes a necessity for educational institution, especially universities as an institution that is able to create graduates who are superior, qualified and able to compete with the flow of globalization and world of work. Integration of entrepreneurship values in education can facilitate process of development and progress that will lead to achievement of maximum and perfect results that is creation of superior and competitive human resources (Esha, 2009).

Education as a means of human quality development, has a direct contribution to the growth of state’s income through improvement of skills and production and labors, in line with Rika Swanzen and Craig Darrel Rowe in his article Community Engagement as a Form Of Social Entrepreneurship In Higher Education Curriculum, as the needs of complex society, the need to teach entrepreneurship in academy and educational institutions, it is needed for interdisciplinary collaboration, not just focus on education alone, students and society must ensure a sustainable learning experience with all partners involved. The occurrence of collaborative barriers between community partnerships, it is necessary to embrace available technological advances for students and society, including online learning as a resource and strength. Of course there are many obstacles that occur, so there needs to be a serious handling in the hope of changes in social conditions of the community, one of them by increasing opportunities and mutually beneficial collaborative development between partnerships, which includes educational institutions or universities, students and society (Swanzen & Rowe, 2013).

This phenomenon becomes interesting when pesantren is associated with world of entrepreneurship. As researcher knew, this study has not been done in Madura Island. In Madura society it was well-known that Islamic education is identical with charity of worship, social activity, and barakah concept. The terms of business charity, business world, and entrepreneurship activities are relatively inaccurate and less elegant when brought to the realm of education, and even tend to imply an element that wants to commercialize institutional institutions that of course contradiction with statement of most managers of education and public opinion in general.

Society is too resistant to the term that smells business; they have assumption that business should be separated from the world of education. Even the most extreme is, let alone have business in educational institutions, think about and be a matter of study only become forbidden areas and tend to be sacred from the world of thought. With various propositions that managers of educational institutions are considered busy with business, forget the function and initial goals of educational institutions. As a result, institutions still rely on government's annual aid and subsidies, forming mental beggars and away from souls of independence and financial resilience.

Therefore, by applying the basic concepts of economy and educational integration, so the use sector of funding and independence of institutions that do not always depend on government’s aids. The implications of this mindset will change perspective and paradigm of managers of educational institutions to seek benefits of educational process. The profits means are not on cognitive, affective and psychomotor aspects alone, but the advantages in form of physical, infrastructure, facilities and infrastructure of the results of entrepreneurship in educational institutions concerned. It is an opportunity for educational institutions to start and implement cultures and traditions about financing sources in Islamic Education institutions (Ewijk, 2018).

Research Methodology

This research is categorized as qualitative research, a research that aims to explore or explain meaning behind the reality. The researcher subscribes to the events that took place in the field (Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan). This research aims at geting an overview holistically about economy and vinancing of Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan. It requires descriptive data in the form of speech, writings, and behavior of the people observed. (Dan, 1992) This study elaborated findings of research in the field that will eventually analyze comprehensively about economy and financing of Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan.

The design of this research uses a social phenomenological approach. Schutz explains that, social phenomenology explains actions and thoughts of man by drawing basic structures, a reality that seems real in every people who clings to scientific attitude. (Denzin & Lincoln, 2009) The type of phenomenology research is used because of the complexity of events, experiences, messages or focus of problem researched.(Creswell, 2002) The foundation of phenomenology is also added by Creswell that considered object of science is not limited to things that are empirical alone, more than it includes another phenomena as perception, thought, volition, and the richness of the subject about something outside of the object, something transcendent in the aposteric side (Muhadjir, 2002b).

The epistemology of phenomenology demands unity the subject of researcher with subject of supporting object of research. The involvement of subjects of researchers in the field, appreciate all activities there in is to be one of main characteristics of research of phenomenology.(Muhadjir, 2002a) The basic principle of social paradigm are: first, individual responds something based on meaning of object. Second, meaning is given based on social interaction that is woven with other individuals. Third, meaning is understood and modified by individuals through interpretation of related with the things encountered. (Suprayogo & Tobroni, 2001) In order to approach criterion of truth, namely the truth of sensual (based on the ability of the senses), truth is logical (based on the sharpness of the mind), truth of ethical (based on the sensitivity of the intellect), and truth of transcendental (Muhadjir, 1996).

The location of this research was conducted at Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan, source of data in this research rests on data sources of human and non-human. (Moleong, 2006) The Sources of human data were obtained from a number of informants from five boarding schools. The selection of informants is based on mastery of informants to the research problem. While data source is non-human form of phenomena related to aspects of learning, aspects of development of activity economy and financing of Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan.

Third, documentation study through media, archival records, billboards and brochures of of Darul Ulum Banyuanyar Pamekasan (Sugiono, 2010).

The first data analysis technique, transcribing data on all results of interviews about entrepreneurship and financing in full and complete as the results obtained in the field. Second, reducing data by summarizing, selecting topics and things that are important, focusing on important things, and discarding irrelevant results. Third, the presentation of data includes narrative texts, matrices and charts. In this study, data is presented in the form of narrative texts and charts. Fourth, the validation and triangulation of data in order to maintain consistency and improve the understanding of researchers towards the data obtained.

Source and Model of Education Financing

Education financing is the total cost which is incurred by individual learners, families who send their children to school, individual citizens, community groups as well as those issued by government for the success or smoothness of education (Suhardan, 2012).

Sources of education financing fees as Dadang Suhardan, economy and education financing are: first, government which includes APBN and APBD. Second, schools include student tuition, third, community includes donations. Fourth, business includes companies, and fifth, grants funds (Suhardan, 2012).

Further, Ramayulis mentions that there is a positive correlation between quality of graduates with education funding, so Islamic educational institutions can realize it with halal educational fund raising, including: forming a business entity or cooperative, In cooperation with Islamic countries which rich in natural resources, source of funds productive waqaf, provide endowment funds, establish institutions Zakat Infaq and Sadaqah, looking for other donations that are not binding (Ramayulis, 2005).

Types of education financing can be categorized into five categories, including: (1) direct costs; (2) indirect costs; (3) private cost; (4) social cost; (5) monetary cost.

Direct cost: is implementation cost issued by school, students and or students’ family. This direct cost is tangible in form of expenditures that are directly used to finance implementation of teaching and learning process, teacher salaries, books, supplies and maintenance costs.

Indirect cost: is living cost that supports the success or smoothness of education. Indirect cost is incurred by children or families of learners who attend education. For example cost of transportation, lodging, food, and health.

Private cost: is total cost incurred by family that must be borne and charged to children’s family for the success of learning of their children. For example, families pay private tutor, courses and other tutoring.

Social cost: is education cost issued by community, both individual and individual to finance all educational activities. This cost is manifestation of community participation in process of national education as mandatory of National Education System that education funding is a shared responsibility between government, local government and society (Indonesia, 2003).

Monetary cost: is financing of education in form of services, energy, time and opportunity sacrificed to support success of education.

From the various types of financing above, in order to improve the quality of education, so the priority in education financing includes: professional development, employee welfare, procurement of learning tools, materials, class facilities, school facilities, care, coaching students, and school management (Fattah, 1999).

As mandated of National Education System that education funding is becomes responsibility between government, local government and community (Indonesia, 2003). On this basis, education funding is essentially become a shared responsibility, role of three components is at stake in supporting education process (Zainuddin, 2008). Moreover, Umberto Sihombing and Indardjo stated that source of education funding cannot be separated from three interrelated factors namely role of parents, community and government (Sihombing & Indardjo, 2003). The three roles are: First, parent has role of continuity of education; all parents have moral attachment between children and parent. With this moral attachment, then every parent has noble duties and functions for the advancement of his son's education. This can be encountered in parent's participation when process of enrollment of new students, tuition, clothing, stationery etc.

Second, society has role and function in maintaining, growing and developing national education. Form and role of community include: implementation, manpower, procurement of financial aid and scholarship, internship and work practice. Third, government has role in preparation and implementation of education system, as affirmed in UUSPN no. 20 of 2003 that educational funds other than educators' salaries and official education fees are allocated at least 20% of APBN in education sector and at least 20% of ABPD (Indonesia, 2003).

While educational financing model is popular with two models namely centralistic and decentralized. First, centralistic is planning of education financing using two programs, namely development programs and routine programs. Development program is aimed at improving quality, relevance and efficiency. While routine programs, translated into activities and routine financing through existing institutions. With the program, educational institution submits field activity list so that school has authority in determining its activities and its routine financing (Saptono, 2018).

Second, is decentralized model. During the regional autonomy, model of education finance planning has not yet used standard model. Education financing planning was done at central and regional level. The central level is closely related to general allocation fund and special allocation fund. The general allocation fund is a general fund to overcome problem of horizontal imbalance (inter-regional) with aim of equitable financial ability between regions. The revenue-sharing fund is part of balancing fund to address problem of vertical inequality (between the central and regional) undertaken through sharing of output between central and producing regions, from some tax revenue and natural resource revenues. The special allocation fund is a special fund to meet financing of special needs of region or national interest (Zainuddin, 2008).

The enactment of law no. 22 of 1999 on regional government, which became known as regional autonomy which was later revised by Law. No. 32 of 2004 has had very significant influence on governance system and performance of central and local government bureaucracy, including in relation to education. The implications of the policy are strengthening role and participation of local governments and communities in managing education. This regional autonomy policy then encourages heads of institutions or teachers to have greater responsibility for the quality of graduates, for three reasons: first, development of democratic society. Second, development of social capital, and third, improves the competitiveness of the nation (Soebahar, 2013).

But then in realization, there are still weaknesses in implementation of decentralization of education policy through regional autonomy, including: first, less ready remote areas. Second, there was no same distribution of local revenue especially poor areas. Third, cause small kings in surplus area. Fourth, mental of corrupt becomes culture. Fifth, made a commodity. Sixth, the lack of clarity of education needs and funding allocation needs (Chan & Sam, 2013)

Based on the finding of the research that economic activities and financing sources in Pesantren Darul Ulum include are: Nuri Syariah Cooperation (KSN) East Java, Drinking Water Nuri, Ice Factory, Shops, Public Kitchen, and Haircut.

Drinking Water In Package "Nuri”, Ice cube factory unit, Shop, and Haircut unit

Cooperation of Darul Ulum Islamic boarding school has new business unit, namely AMDK (package drinking water) "Nuri" means "light". This effort is expected to become a new energy in boosting cottage economy. Currently this business still handles the production of 19 liters of water gallons and bottled water bottles of 600 ml. The main target consumer of this business unit is internal cottage and surrounding community. It was engaged in drinking water production sector cup 220 ml packaging, bottle packaging 600 ml and 1500 ml, packing 19 liter gallon. The initial capital of Rp. 10,000,000 and the final balance becomes Rp. 30,000,000 excluding capital of machinery and other equipment (Saptono, 2018).

As stated by Mr. Zainuddin Syarif, supervisor of the East Java Syariah Nuri Cooperative, he explained that:

Entrepreneurship is a person who has strong desire and entrepreneurship. The sociohistorical / historical establishment of Entrepreneurial activities in the Darul Ulum institution begins with inspiring behavior of the kiai, besides being a caregiver, he is also a businessman / entrepreneur. Where in each lecture giving material in Islamic boarding schools, always instill educational values that lead to the balance of worldly welfare and ukhrawi. In his language, "let alone the end of tomorrow, if still possible, plant trees today" in addition, in each Forum Darul Ulum alumni meetings, such as the Santri Banyuanyar Student Communication Forum (FKMSB) and Banyuanyar Alumni Association (Civilization) always motivate santri and its alumni have opportunities in the field of business, because it is impossible for thousands of students from Darul Ulum Banyuanyar (± 5000 male students and ± 3000 female students) after graduation they will become all Kiai, Da'i or Muballigh, they will go to the community according to their capacity individual soul calling. Therefore, guidance on skills, skills and other experiences is very necessary, including entrepreneurial skills (Syarif, 2016).

Water is a basic need for life and even water is the source of life itself. The need for water is increasing. Drinking water has become a staple for everyone. Drinking water is important for health of body. Water quality and hygienic is water suitable for consumption. The drinking water requirements are odorless, tasteless, and colorless, contain no heavy metals and contain no harmful microorganisms. Drinking water is water through processing or without processing that meets health requirements and can be taken directly.
