Abstract

Co-operative is a socio-economic institution which is the most appropriate for Indonesian economic system. Indonesia has the largest number of co-operatives in the world, however, they have not contributed optimally for the Indonesian economy. Co-operative trainings held by the government failed to improve co-operative’s quality, since those trainings were not based on co-operative’s real needs. This study aims to identify and map areas of action for future development of the co-operatives. Using modified Development Ladder Assessment (DLA) as a tool, 74 co-operatives in Central Java, Indonesia,  were measured. Four dimensions were assessed using DLA: 1) vision, 2) governance and member engagement, 3) management capacity and business development, and 4) financial management.  Total score for each dimension determines whether co-operative is in red, yellow or green areas. Red means poor, yellow means moderate, and green means excellent. Most of the co-operatives are poor in the first (vision) and the third (management capacity and business development) dimensions. The Co-operatives were also found to have moderate governance and member engagement (the second dimension). Finally, the result show that financial management (the fourth dimension) has been well-implemented. Implication of this study is that co-operatives are suggested to get appropriate trainings based on their color areas.

Abstract

After the issuance of the village law, villages in Indonesia are required to be economically independent by utilizing their potentials. This study aims to find out main potentials of villages in Banyumas to be developed into village-owned enterprise business units and explore the reasons why villages choose this potential as a village-owned enterprise business unit. This study uses a qualitative approach with data collection methods using focused group discussion and in-depth interviews. The results of this study indicate that of the seven villages participating in the research, six villages chose rural tourism as the main business unit of their village-owned enterprise. Most villages choose rural tourism because they consider that there has been a successful model of rural tourism enterprises in Indonesia and because rural tourism is considered as a solution to various problems.Keywords: Village Law, Rural Tourism, Village-Owned Enterprise, Village Autonomy.
