Hautes-Pyrénées: Banque Populaire and Initiatives Pyrénées renew their partnership
“A very rich collaboration, with the common desire to serve and help companies in the Hautes-Pyrénées obtain funding for their projects.” Chantal Robin-Carillo summarized the nature of the partnership between Initiatives Pyrénées, the structure she chairs, and Banque Populaire Occitane. A renewed agreement with Christophe Hervera, director of the Gers and Hautes-Pyrénées branch group, during a reception attended by bank branch managers and the team of the association which helps entrepreneurs. “La Banque Populaire is a network that brings entrepreneurs closer to their bank,” continued Chantal Robin-Carillo. Its director is a member of our board of directors and the bank is involved in the accreditation committee of Initiatives Pyrénées, chaired by Yves Dumestre.”
A proximity that also has repercussions for business creators since the Banque Populaire grants additional financing to the unsecured honorary loans granted by Initiatives Pyrénées. “It represents an amount eight times higher than the loan of honor that it carries around, knowing that Banca Popolare accompanies 25% of the creators we support,” underlined Chantal Robin-Carillo. For her part, Christophe Hervera welcomed this “partnership which unites us and resembles us, as a bank of crafts and projects”.
