Lailatur Rohmah, Pudji Muljono, Ninuk Purbaningsih and Aida Vitayala

Abstract: This study aims at analyzing the relationship between the level of empowerment of UPPKS’ members and their characteristics and to discuss strategies to empower poor family. Data was collected by using questionnaires towards 192 UPPKS members. These data were then estimated by using by descriptive test, different test of Mann Whitney and Rank Spearman test. The study found that UPPKS members in five regions of Jakarta had different levels of empowerment and characteristics in accessing and managing their business. There are significant differences in age and business experiences in accessing capital, level of education, capital owned, and to access technology. The level of empowerment of members in accessing capital, information, market opportunities and business networks are in the medium category, while in accessing technology is still low. However, the overall relationship of empowerment and its characteristics shows factors that are significantly related are age, level of education, owned capital, business experience and business motivation. Therefore, strategies to improve the poor family under the UPPKS program can be undertaken by (1) enhancing the empowerment process specified in counseling and training; (2); enhancing group roles; and (3) strengthening support from several institutions. This study also confirms that increasing the empowerment of members is very important because the ability of UPPKS members to build and gain access in several institutions can lead to business independence. However, efforts to improve the empowerment of UPPKS members require a different approach to all aspects of technical and non-technical capabilities. Thus, much remain to be done.
