The Head of the Cooperatives and UMKM Office for Lampung Province, Samsurizal Ari, said cooperatives that were established in Lampung Province were engaged in many fields ranging from production, consumption, services to savings and loans.

"However, those who dominate are engaged in the production sector. Primary cooperatives themselves are cooperatives with a minimum of 20 members each," he said when questioned, Sunday 5 February 2023.

He explained, permits to establish cooperatives continue to exist every year, this is because the central government has made it easy for community groups who wish to form cooperatives in accordance with Government Regulation Number 7 of 2021.

"What are the requirements for setting up a cooperative, what is certain is that it has an AD ART, then there is an agreement between the management and there is initial capital and business activities to be carried out by the cooperative," he said.

Samsurizal explained, for self-loan assistance, cooperatives can apply to the Revolving Fund Management Institute which is expected to help cooperatives obtain financial assistance.

"For self-help, cooperatives can apply for loans to the Revolving Fund Management Institute, which is a work unit under the ministry of Cooperatives and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. This assistance is also a form of caring for cooperatives to remain active because they have financial assistance," he said. (*)
