  • Who suffered a loss of activity of more than 40% during the months of March, April, May 2020
  • Who have not benefited from PGE or PASS REBOND OCCITANIE
  • For which the weight of operating and financial costs are significant

These criteria are not mutually exclusive.

Two devices are proposed:

  • Repayable advances : capped at € 10 for companies with 000 to 0 FTE / € 3 for companies with more than 25 FTE. Floor: 000 €. These advances are repayable, over 4 years with quarterly appeal and after a deferral of 2 months.
