1Faculty of Economic and Business, Universitas Sebelas Maret, Indonesia
The entry of coal mining companies around the community is something that the surrounding community is afraid of; this is related to the environmental damage caused by the coal mining. But on the other hand, coal mining is expected to be able to have a positive impact on the economy of the community around the mine through the role of corporate social responsibility programs. The purpose of this study will be to examine how the part of mining companies through the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program in Paser Regency can contribute to the development of MSMEs in the community around the mining area. This research was conducted by conducting surveys and interviews with respondents, namely MSME actors around mining sites. The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program by a coal mining company in Paser Regency has a positive impact on empowering MSMEs in the communities around the mine. CSR programs by providing training for MSME actors can improve MSME performance compared to financing assistance programs and marketing assistance.
