Solidarity Cents: promote employees' commitment
The “Centimes Solidaires” (Solidarity Cents) operation was launched at the initiative of the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation and Crédit Agricole SA to finance entrepreneurship projects. Every year, during one week, the staff of the Crédit Agricole Campuses in Montrouge and Saint-Quentin will be invited to make a 50 cents donation when paying for their meals in the canteens of those campuses.
For this first year, the donations collected were given to the NGO Entrepreneurs du Monde to finance “Programme France” which aims at supporting entrepreneurship projects for refugees, single parents and homeless people in Lyon. €6 660 were given to Entrepreneurs du Monde, of which €2 660 were raised thanks to Crédit Agricole employees. Crédit Agricole SA and the Grameen Crédit Agricole Foundation also contributed to the final amount collected.
