Abstract

Since COVID-19 arrived in Indonesia, Indonesia has been stuck in a recession for four quar-
ters. The work from home policy is implemented to keep the economy running during a pan-
demic, which has accelerated the digitalization of the economy. Along with the digitalization
of the economy, MSMEs are the pillars of the Indonesian economy. The government has also
included MSMEs and digital transformation as the focus of national economic recovery. Unfor-
tunately, in formulating policies, the government lost its focus on the digitalization of MSMEs.
The writing of this paper uses descriptive qualitative research methods based on literature
studies from various literature. Merdeka Digitalisasi Program with the self-help approach
method is an idea to overcome this. The self-help approach allows the community to help each
other develop the existing digitalization potential. The ethos embedded in the self-help ap-
proach is responsibility and group image. The formation of communities with this concept has
proven to increase resilience and adaptation to unstable times like today. In Merdeka
Digitalisasi, students will be sent to villages and MSME entrepreneurs to teach economic
digitization. With Merdeka Digitalization, students actively introduce economic digitization
to MSMEs and reduce existing technological stuttering. Merdeka Digitalization is a solution
wherein the national economic recovery, the government does not only involve consumers and
MSME entrepreneurs but students who will become the leaders of this country.
