The challenges faced by MSMEs during the Covid-19 pandemic and the existence of regulations from the government regarding the Enforcement of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) were first, namely the decline in income because buyers did not do many outside activities, secondly it was difficult to find loan capital and promotional activities were hampered. Our team has the opportunity to help MissMojito Lampung partners to develop their business by first providing digital marketing applications to help promote MissMojito Lampung products, secondly helping to finance MissMojito Lampung’s business operations. So that the use of the Digital Marketing Application is an alternative as a promotional media for MissMojito Lampung products.
