Corporate social responsibility (Budimanta, 2002) is a commitment from corporations to create better quality of living with related stakeholders, especially civil society/community who live in surrounding area of the company. The CSR program should be conducted in and integrated with its business activities in a sustainable manner. This is emphasized by the fact that the company is not just a mere business entity but also a social entity. Accordingly, its presence affects and is affected by the surrounding environment.
One effort that could be done in building higher quality of relationships between companies and local communities is through the development of strategic partnerships and trust building. important step which can be related to the implementation of CSR is to improve the economy of surrounding communities through the development of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) located in the neighboring community. The role of companies in the development of SMEs can be shown by providing assistance to SMEs so that they can establish capacity building, financial support and strong marketing channels.
Based on research from the Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, together with the Central Bureau of Statistics in 2007, SMEs in Indonesia reached 99.98 percent of total business. SMEs contribute strongly to the providence of jobs in providing employment. In 2006, SMEs were able to absorb up to 85.4 million workers. The amount represents 96.18 percent of total labor force in Indonesia. We can conclude that SMEs depict the real sector of society that promotes independence. In the context of CSR, SME development can be seen as effort to realize the independence of the community in accordance with the goal of community empowerment programs that is being implemented. At the same time to assist the development of SMEs, corporate parties can also move forward the real economy sector in Indonesia. A good and well-planned SME development program is necessary so that direct benefits to the corporations can be provided, in order to reduce community dependence on the corporate parties concerned.
