Assistance and Empowerment of MSES: Aoplication of Flower Preservation Methods and Simple Accounting to Increase the Income of the Retirement Age Community in Sukapada Village, Cibeunying Kidul District, Bandung City

Gatot Santoso, Magnaz Lestira Oktaroza


Assistance and empowerment are carried out for Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs –
Retirement Age) actors with preserved flower products and the application of Simple
Accounting in the Sukapada sub-district, Cibeunying Kidul District, Bandung City. Based on
the results of the PKM Team's survey, information was obtained that Sukapada Village,
Cibeunying Kidul District, is the northernmost village in Cibeunying Kidul District, most of
the residents are retirees from various jobs who gather together daily to carry out worship and
sports activities. Furthermore, information was obtained that in the Sukapada Village there
were several groups of residents who were flower craftsmen trying to develop decorative
flower crafts. The constraints currently faced by flower makers in the Sukapada sub-district are
fast wilting flowers, non-uniform flower diameters and blooming rates. Based on the conditions
mentioned above, the PKM Team intends to help improve the quality of these ornamental
flowers to become ornamental flowers that last for more than 1 year so that they have high
selling power by implementing a preservation process. Assistance and empowerment is carried
out through training on flower preservation, training on making simple bookkeeping, training
on website management for online shopping, and product registration in the form of preserved
flowers in several market places. Through the training conducted, business people have been
able to produce quality preserved flowers and calculate the cost of the product and the selling
price of the preserved flowers. In addition, they are also able to always maintain the website
and market place they already have so that they can be used all the time to increase profitable
sales volume and increase the income of these business people.
