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.
