This process begins with data collection on testing the ability of debtors, make arrangements for borrowers to work properly and return the loan. Implementation took place in a period of 1 year and micro- credit borrowers are selected from low economy class community. Before granting loans, microcredit and financial records training implementing agencies provide religious discourse about trade. The meeting between executives and micro-credit borrowers are held every week, the show began with a reading of the pledge, read the Koran and religious lectures.

Criteria for successful micro-credit application is simple, namely the intention to repay debt with honesty, and good effort in improving the quality of life.
