Abstract

The experience of the economic crisis that had hit Indonesia in 1997 showed that micro-entrepreneurs were able to survive, reduce unemployment and absorb employment. Despite having a large role, micro-entrepreneurs, faced with various problems of access to capital. Lack of access to capital is a factor hampering the success of entrepreneurs. LPPI study results (2015), only 30% are able to access financing. As a solution, the development of micro-entrepreneurs is carried out based on the Islamic maqasid through the use of zakat funds. This study uses qualitative methods with a literature study and descriptive approach. The results of this study indicate that the Islamic maqasid which is directly related to the development of micro-entrepreneurs is protecting offspring (nasl) and protecting property (maal). Protecting religion in the context of developing micro-entrepreneurs is maintaining business continuity and sustainability. Whereas protecting assets in the context of developing micro-entrepreneurs is a business that must be managed professionally in order to grow and make a profit.
