This study aims to examine the implementation of the Zmart program and the extent of its role in improving the welfare of the zakat recipient community (mustahik) in Bojonegoro Regency. The researcher used a descriptive qualitative method and single case study design with the research locus of Bojonegoro Regency. Data obtained through interviews, observation, and documentation. Informants in this study were mustahik recipients of the Zmart program and the Head of BAZNAS in Bojonegoro Regency as the person in charge of implementing Zmart. The data analysis process uses an interactive model which includes data collection, data reduction, data presentation, and concluding. The results show that Zmart has recently been implemented in Bojonegoro Regency. The number of mustahik recipients is currently two people from two remote villages in Margomulyo and Ngraho sub- districts. The implementation of Zmart went well by the provisions. The existence of Zmart is considered mustahik enough to help improve social and economic welfare. Mustahik also started to have a strategy to develop a Zmart kiosk. However, it is not too significant because the business unit of Zmart has just started. In addition, Zmart has not been supported by a program to improve the quality of human resources, so the skills of mustahik in entrepreneurship are still low.
