Presentation of the scheme

The aid provided is an interest-free loan of up to €10,000. This sum cannot represent the entire investment.

The request may concern investment needs (premises, machinery), purchase of materials, market research, development of communication tools, participation in a trade fair, etc.

The entrepreneurial and innovative dimension is a determining factor in the allocation of the loan. Particular attention will be paid to projects that take into account environmental impacts.
