Our support is manifested in various partnership programs targeting various business sectors, "said Eman Suherman, Head of PT DAHANA (Persero)’s Partnership and Community Development Program on August 11, 2020 at the DAHANA’s PCDP Subang Office.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic hit, all MSMEs have been impacted, particularly in terms of decrease of turnover resulting from the decline in market demand for MSME’s products Subang Regency. DAHANA's PCDP Foster Partners have also experienced this unfavorable situation. One of the fostered partners who is engaged in making footwear has finally shifted business to a cloth mask manufacturer.

Support for other MSMEs development programs is given by organizing both online and offline training. PT DAHANA (Persero) through a special PCDP unit has collaborated with the Center for Integrated Business Services for Cooperatives and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (PLUT KUMKM) in Subang Regency to hold free online and offline training for MSME doers under the theme of Restarting Business for MSME Doers amidst New Normal Conditions, on July 22, 2020.
"The training is a real action from DAHANA PCDP to help MSME doers develop their business in facing the new normal era resulting from the Covid-19 pandemic. Hopefully this training by DAHANA will have a positive effect to the participants, "said Eman.
He continued, that any MSMEs who wish to become DAHANA's PCDP partners should be potential partners that have been running the business in MSME for at least 6 months and such businesses have the prospect of being developed while their products can absorb local resources for the benefits of many people and potential partners.
