Abstract

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on various sectors. The Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) have felt a tremendous impact. Limited capital and the lack of market access have further aggravated MSMEs throughout the country. Sleman Regency of Yogyakarta Special Region is not an exception. In 2021, there were 68,382 MSMEs in the regency. The social restriction policy and the recommendation to stay at home during the pandemic have had a very significant impact on the survival of MSMEs in the regency. In these conditions, the role of the government is expected to be able to save their existence. Paying more attention and being closer to MSMEs will give hope in difficult times like this. To protect MSMEs so that they can survive the Covid-19 pandemic, the regency government is intensifying the role of the Integrated Business Service Center or Pusat Layanan Usaha Terpadu (PLUT). The PLUT was formed in 2019, the real goal is to facilitate MSMEs in the regency which are non-financial services that are comprehensive and integrated. Especially in a pandemic time like these days. This study used a qualitative approach, data collection using literature study and interview techniques. Interviewed parties are members of the Team at the PLUT. The data were analyzed through descriptive qualitative analysis. The results stated that the existence of the PLUT is relatively strategic in helping the MSMEs during this pandemic. However, several weaknesses must be followed up by the regency government, including increased the number of mentors, because the number of mentors is not proportional to the number of MSMEs that must be served.
