In recent years, UMKMs have been commonly seen as 'OBJECTS' that are deserving of Development Aid Programs provided by Donors, as they are assumed to be 'very attractive' and have 'marketable value’
For the Donors, providing aid to UMKMs to help fund their businesses and activities has been considered as one of their 'key success factors' in Organisational Branding
For the Recipients, be it the UMKMs themselves or any other party seeking for aid, UMKMs are frequently used as a vessel to entice Donors to grant their proposals.
A commonly overlooked mistake made by the Organisers of UMKM Development Aid Programs is in clustering the target of their programs based on generic and superficial aspects.
The success of the program cannot be measured accurately because of this very reason. The Programs were completed but ultimately were not effective nor efficient
ETHNOGRAPHIC RESEARCH: Identify ROOT CAUSE of problems
ACTION: To cluster UMKM into Homogeneous specific problem
Development Aid Program should target specific Cluster and solve the Specific Problem.
