Sambeng is a sub-district in Lamongan Regency, East Java Province, Indonesia. The potential of this area is the folk crafts of woven pandan mats, the manufacture of pottery, roof tiles, and red bricks. The agricultural product is tobacco. The problem is that this area is dry; the water source is very far away. Mothers usually take water from a well that is far away. Based on these conditions, it is necessary to research what potential in the village can be utilized and developed into a Micro/Small Enterprise to increase family income. The results of the research: The potential of Kedung Banjar village, Sambeng sub-district, producing area of ??woven pandan mats, burning limestone, and growing tobacco, as well as producing sappan wood. Micro and Small Business actors in Kedung Banjar Village are still done mainly by men as the head of the household. At the same time, women, only very few of them work in the field of snacks (there are only two banana chips and two kindergarteners, while those who use sappan wood for drinks are only tiny, so it can be concluded that micro/small business actors from women in this village are very lacking and need to be improved.
