This research study explores two different modalities (Hybrid and Common Goods model) implemented in Poktans in two different Districts in Kalimantan Island, Indonesia, in order to analyze under what conditions the Poktans achived different successful result on modality implementation. Poktans in this regard are a promising vehicle to implement development programs as well as social capital manifestation. A discussion is made highlighting that Poktans formation involve the rational action based on social capital elements. Using our data set, we firstly identify trust, norms and networks in the Poktans. Trust arises as a result of day-to-day interactions also known as existing networks, and the working relationships with others (that is LGs agencies). We further show that different Poktans arrangement impose different level of result in the modality implementation. Even with one modality implemented, different results have been seen on Poktans performances. As such, when LGs try to implement different version of modalities, they should carefully consider the institutional and social context of people in those various areas.
