A survey using a case study approach was conducted at koperasi Masjid Hafshotul Iman, Masjid Taqwa and Masjid Darul HikmahThe survey employed a purposive sampling method with the participation of the cooperative’s management (chairman, secretary, and treasurer) and the masjid’s members. Ten respondents were purposively chosen from each mosque and a total 30 respondents were acquired. The distributed questionnaire was a closed one, measured with a Likert scale.

Based on the results of the factor analysis, the members’ participation level in cooperative service can be classified into three primary factors. Some of the variables displayed a strong correlation with Factor 1, namely motivation, management performance, RAT performance, and supervisor performance.
