Finance Local News
A new local currency for Lorient soon to be launched

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 .
