Lorient: The New Local Currency Soon on the Shelves?

No substitute for the euro, Segal, new local currency circulated late November in the Lorient region. The first ticket was presented Friday. A central library is the first to adopt it.

The local currency, presented yesterday by the Blé Noir à la librairie,  When books are opened in Lorient, does not claim to outdo the euro, but wants to work in tandem with it.

The Segal is first a currency that is trading in the spirit of practices that aim primarily to give a boost to the local economy.

A virtuous idea who arrives here but has already proven everywhere in France.

A segal = 1 euro

Segal is a euro. A desired parity to simplify things with a maximum six tickets available: 0.50, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20, printed on security paper.

The exchange soon in counters will be set up all over the country Lorient.


Beforehand, a fundraising campaign will be launched on the site www.zeste.coop  to edit 150,000 billets needed for its launch.

One can also contact the project leaders on their Facebook page .
