AbstractThe success of aloe vera as business commodity in co-partnership pattern, like that between PT Kavera Biotech and the collective work cluster (KUB) of aloe vera farmers in Kecamatan Beji, Depok, needs an accurate evaluation. The objective of this research were to (1) investigate the co-partnership business, (2) analyze the feasibility, and (3) analyze the development strategy. The data were collected by observation, interview, and questionnaire. The location selection was done purposively based on the consideration that the location had been used as sampling for aloe vera cultivation. The feasibility of business was valued using the methods of PBP, NPV, BCR, IRR, and BEP.
