The existence of MFIs is intended to meet the needs of capital and other financial services needs. It is therefore important to consider ways to encourage MFIs to develop better, especially in the context of economic empowerment and strengthening of the people's business. One of the serious problems encountered in economic development in Indonesia is practicing legal framework of economic policy in the development of economic policies. During this time, the issue is not important given the economic governance practices since independence has been running with the current logic of economic development that evolved on the basis of field experience or empirical theories and success stories in other countries are deemed worthy example. Hard to imagine that the constitution should diajdikan substantive reference in any official policy in the process of economic development. MFIs have grown long before the Republic was established.
