If managed and empowered properly, natural wealth and resources in the village can support the progress and development of the village. Village resources, both natural resources and human resources, are important assets to be managed and maximized for the village’s gain. The village government plays an important role in management and must have a supportive strategy to achieve its goals. This research aimed to determine the resources owned by Pecuk Village in Tulungagung and what procedures have been carried out by the village government to maximize the potential of these village resources. Descriptive qualitative methods were used. The results indicated that Pecuk Village is one of the villages where the BUMDes (village-owned enterprises) do not work because there is no explicit coordination between village leaders and the community. Meanwhile, the community needs BUMDes to assist them in carrying out economic activities. Such assistance includes: fertilizers, socialization of farmers, savings and loans assistance, and entrepreneurship training. The village government must map out the natural potential of resources and mobilize the community in the village to reactivate BUMDes and carry out activities according to community needs.
