Factor analysis was used to form the resilience factor and descriptive analysis was used to look demography, resilience practices, and to analyze the assistance in improving entrepreneurial resilience. This study has developed resilience factors and improved resilience. The government needs to be vigilant in providing the assistance needed by entrepreneurs to rehabilitate businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
