it is usual that if the people want to propose a cooperation witht The palm oil company, they are usually asked to make an institution, such as, cooperation in the first place, beside the other requiirements. the question is, what is the cooperation actually?

just like what has done, the people in making partnership with palm oil company (ies), it should make an institution, such as, cooperation, within at least consists of 20 men. Of course, this is done for some reasons.

Just like a palm oil farmers from Village of Dawas, Subdistrict of Keluang, Musi Banyuasin, Rianto told. After enlarging palm oil plantation in 2005, he and the other farmers agreed to be a group and made a cooperation.

In fact, it is proven to be benefit when they were asked to make partnership with palm oil company in the region. It runs well until now. Rianto, of course, found some problems when making the cooperation with independent farmers. But if Rianto did not make the cooperation, what would happen?

How far is the cooperation playing its role to realize the partnership among the farmers and the palm oil company (ies)?

Vice Director of PT Sasaran Ehsan Mekarsari, Arie Malangyudo shared his experiences in his blog. He said, cooperation is a business institution which is regulated in the Regulation No. 25 / 1992 about Cooperation. It is formed by some men, at least 20 men. This kind of cooperation, Arie noted, is Primer Cooperation.

In fact, the cooperation could be formed by joining some cooperations, with the minimum numbers are three cooperations. It is called secunder cooperation which is made by the Document of Incorporation which consists of Article of Association in Statute after the government officially announce it.

In the cooperation, the Members Meeting could give the coordinators authority to the coordinators. The cooperation is the economical, social democracy belonging to every member, the coordinators or the managers.

In general, running the cooperation is done by the coordinators for it is not a group of men having goal to get the profits in large numbers. So every member is oblidged to work together to reach the goal, that is, the welfare of every member.

Both benefits or loss, the member should togetherly burden it. If the cooperation gets loss, the members have the same loss too. The member who is not capable, he is free from the loss. The loss is burdened by them who are capable.

It is normal if something happens in a cooperation in District of Pelalawan, Riau Province, such as, a loss, and the cooperation is sued to be closed, it happened for the cooperation is mismanaged.

In order not to be like that, in making some activities, the cooperation could make relationship with other legal institution, for example, private company (ies) or state company (ies). The structures of the cooperation consist of Members Meeting, Coordinators and Inspectors.
