The group is launching an original scheme to help create jobs in the Tarn
As part of a revitalization convention signed with the French state, the group supports the creation of 230 jobs in the Tarn area over a period of three years. True to its territorial roots and to the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, the group has set up an original financial scheme intended to accompany the development of local companies, or of companies wishing to settle in the region.
Developed in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Tarn and with the Crédit Agricole Nord Midi-Pyrénées, this scheme includes two types of assistance plans, which can be combined if need be, depending on the nature of the project: a bank loan fund with bonus rates and a grant fund. This scheme will make it possible to support companies, and first and foremost SMEs and ETI, over time, in association with all the players in the economic development of the region.
