This research will focus on the aspect of
strengthening village government policies in increasing
community income through the development of
diversified processed products for fishermen groups. So
far, product diversification is only limited to training, so it
is necessary to implement real policies from the Molutabu
Village government to increase the economic income of
the Molutabu Village community, Bone Bolango Regency.
The research uses a qualitative approach. Data collection
techniques using observation, interviews and
documentation. Data analysis are: 1) data reduction; 2).
data presentation); and 3) drawing
conclusions/verification. The results of the study show
that Strengthening Village Government Policies in
increasing community income through the development of
processed product diversification for fisherman groups is
seen at the Policy Planning Stage; 2) Policy
implementation stage; and 3) The policy evaluation stage
has been carried out well, although it is still a program
and has not yet been included in the product of
permanent regulations or permanent village regulations.
While the determinants of product diversification are seen
in the aspects of internal factors that encourage product
development there is no company that can create or
produce processed fish in Molutabu village, and external
factors that encourage product development in Molutabu
village still need to consider the leading sector which is a
priority scale in support tourism management.
Empowerment of rural communities in producing
processed fish products is also an important part,
considering that the community is located on the coast.
The leading sectors include processed fish products,
which until now have not been empowered. So that it
cannot compete in the market, especially for visitors to
the beach of Molutabu village. There are still many
products that come from the city and even from other
districts enter the village of Molutabu to be traded to
customers who visit the beach of Molutabu Village. They
are our competitors in the village in terms of products. It
is hoped that the diversification of these processed
products will become a fundamental thing to be developed
in the village continuously and continuously to increase
the income per capita of the community as well as the
PAD of the village and the Bone Bolango Regency
