Co-operative is one of the efforts as well as the people's economic movement, where the cooperative is a group of people who have a lower level economy, through cooperatives together and want or have a purpose to improve their welfare. Over time the cooperative is not only a collection of people who are economically weak but also belong to those whose economic rate is already high, this can be seen from the problems faced today, the public's view of trust in the Cooperative in becoming a benchmark society to improve living standards began to fall. The number of cooperatives that are tame and do not have a commitment to the purpose of cooperatives actually makes the cooperative including financial institutions that can no longer be trusted.

But lately cooperatives prefer oriented businesses as managing partners of funds that go outside of member funds, so that business development is sorted into second, and cooperatives are busy managing grants or assistance from the government, so many cooperatives are closed because they cannot account for the funds and abandon their members.As a result of this study, Table 1 respondent x score obtained stated Agree (S) a number of scores of 80, from 4 villages, and disagreed (TS) a number of scores of 40, with an average score of 60.
