UPK, District Facilitator (FK) and beneficiary groups. 5) Attitudes of Tendency (Disposition), the results of this study that the beneficiaries of the SPP program do not yet have the awareness to use these funds wisely. 6) Social, political, and economic conditions, the results of this research are the economic and educational background of the beneficiaries of the SPP program, making them only focus on meeting consumption needs and the funds are only assistance, not stimulants that must be developed. The results of the field research show that the savings and loan program for women's groups has been implemented, however, there is still misuse of loan funds which results in arrears in payment of loan contributions. This is due to the lack of coordination between the women's savings and loan program management unit and the sub-district facilitator as the program implementer and the lack of awareness of beneficiaries to use stimulant funds wisely.
