Cooperatives have an important role in realizing people’s welfare and strengthening the economic position, however how cooperatives can maintain their identity and weak competitiveness are fundamental issues. This is because there is a legal protection that is out of date and unable to go international, so cooperatives need to carry out total reform. The purpose of this study was to analyze the influence of identity and competitiveness of cooperatives on economic growth in the Village Unit Cooperative (Koperasi Unit Desa or KUD) Malang District. This study used a survey research method with a quantitative approach, while to obtain research data used interviews and questionnaires. The population used in 5 Village Unit Cooperatives (KUD) in Malang District, namely KUD Gondanglegi, KUD Pagelaran, KUD Pakis, KUD Sari Bumi Bululawang, and KUD Satya Dharma Bantur, each KUD as many as 20 so that the total sample is 100 respondents. The results showed that the identity of the cooperative and the competitiveness of the cooperative had a significant effect on the economic growth of the community in Malang District with a sig. 0,000. This means that if the identity and competitiveness of the cooperative are in good condition, it can increase the competitiveness of the products produced, be able to provide technology and supporting facilities to improve the quality and capacity of collective production, so that economic recovery and community economic growth will be better.
