The quality of MSMEs in Indonesia can be said to still vary, and depends on the business sector, location, and business size. However, some MSMEs have been able to develop their business and have good quality products, but there are also MSMEs that still need to improve the quality of the products and services offered. This will be a long job so that MSMEs reach their maximum level.


MSMEs in this case need to improve quality in ways that are efficient and sustainable. Such as increasing the skills and knowledge of MSME actors, MSME actors need to have adequate skills and knowledge in running their business to achieve good quality.


In addition, access to capital and financing is also an important factor. MSMEs need to have good financing facilities to support their business, and this sometimes becomes a big problem. Then matters of technology and innovation are no less important. Technology and innovation in this era have become a necessity, things related to it always intersect with quality and service for a business.


Furthermore, one thing that can rapidly boost the quality of MSMEs is having access to the market. MSME actors need to have the ability to penetrate towards wider market access. By having broad access, a business can improve the quality and reach of its business. Then there are other ways such as improving the business environment, a conducive and healthy business environment can help MSMEs improve the quality of the products and services offered. Therefore, the business environment is very important, and it can also be a starting point before starting other methods.

Especially small and medium enterprises, which have many limitations in moving towards independence. To increase the quality capacity of MSMEs, Indonesia certainly has many places to provide training and coaching.
