The hardest experiences for 45 years are the part to prepare the prosperity and happiness community.
According to him, GKKI needs to be reviewed about its sturdiness in order to have well-established of GKKI. GKKI must have a strong basis to solve the fluctuation dynamics of economic social in the market place.
Adopted in his article, GKKI conditions are the reflection of supremacy and reputation in developing credit union and the financial institution service. It has been proved by getting awards from local government. There are many primary credit union as the member of GKKI got award from many parties. One of them is “ 100 largest cooperatives in Indonesia”, has published in PIP, cooperative edition on 12 July 2011. There are 32 credit unions that has included as 100 larget cooperative.

A credit union willing to review the strategic in applying the implementation of programmes for each component of GKKI. Does the communication among the member appropriate to the structure and whether the organisation culture that will be applied has been consistent done or not especially about leadership values?
