What is it? AMKI
AMKI is a youth organization that builds business entity cooperatives that are different from other cooperatives. Yes, AMKI is indeed a very millennial cooperative. Because AMKI thinks that the most suitable form of business with the Millennial Generation is a Cooperative, because it matches the traits and preferences of the following young people:
- Community Based (gathering / guyub / community): By holding the Annual Member Meeting (RAT)
- Sharing Economy (sharing; digital platform / eCommerce): There is a division of Business Revenue (SHU)
- Egalitarian (equality): a collection of PEOPLE, not a collection of CAPITAL like PT.
- In cooperatives adhering to the principle of One Man One Voter not One Share One Vote,
Deputy Chairperson of AMKI Tommy Priyanto stated that this is clear evidence that cooperatives are business institutions that can keep up with the changing times. The use of digital technology will of course increase efficiency and effectiveness in managing cooperative businesses and also increase the quality of member services.
Tommy provides that the principles and identity of a cooperative where part of the social capital must be developed into an effective, productive, and for common prosperity, including being empowered through digitalization. This step is also believed to be able to answer the challenge of capital adequacy due to the pandemic which not only affects the cooperative as the forum that houses members, but also affects the members’ businesses.
“Many parts of the cooperative find it difficult to pay loan installments, or pay membership deposits which are the basic capital of the cooperative, resulting in a lack of capital, which certainly affects the existence of the cooperative business,” said Tommy, who is one of the Heads of the Kodanua Savings and Loan Cooperative.
Digital Transformation of Communities with AMKI
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Ralali together with AMKI created Konekto to accommodate cooperative actors to move forward along with the times.

Ease of Interaction during the Pandemic Period for the Recovery of the National Economy
Indonesia is currently trying hard to improve the people’s economy. What is really affected is that MSMEs often make loans to cooperatives. Therefore, with the existence of Konekto which is the idea of AMKI in collaboration with Ralali to make it easier for the small community to be able to continue to carry out the economic turnover of their small and micro medium enterprises.
Konekto will not only be a facility for connecting UMKM players together with the community, it will also be able to support systemized bookkeeping and facilitate the management of MSME business operations.
