This study aims to identify and analyze the implementation of the Joint Business Group(called KUBE) program policies and its impacts to the poor people, as well as to find a design model of poverty reduction through a Joint Business Group approach. This research was conducted at Gadung village with the object of research: KUBE Sejahtera and KUBE Hasyanah. The results showed that the fundamental reason of the formation of KUBE is actually to find a way out of the economic problems by the poor. KUBE Sejahtera in its management have diverged in the utilization of aid received, while KUBE Hasyanah has been able to run the management and business development prospectively. Mentoring process on both KUBE is just a media formality, which only run at the beginning of the KUBE formed. Theimplementation of the policy program at KUBE Sejahtera has become stagnate where policy holders can’t drive the growth of creativity of the beneficiaries, especially the issue of skills development of members, and only rely on a fellow worker. This has an impact on the implementation impact both socially and economically. The social impact on both KUBE look optimal, but none on its economic impact. The design model of poverty reduction policies obtained from the implementation of the program, is the improvement of KUBE program itself which uses mapping potential targeting of the poor and changes in budgeting allocation.l,
