Regional initiatives in support of traders from Riviera and Lavaux

In response to the difficult situation which traders are currently experiencing, Jeunes Chambres Internationales (JCI) Riviera et Lavaux, supported by Promove, have decided to provide traders with a web platform allowing them to sell vouchers which can be used as soon as this period of closure is over.  This initiative is aimed at enabling the hardest hit traders to have liquidity at their disposal immediately, so that they may meet their fixed costs while their business is closed. 

The system is simple: any business unable to operate because of the measures taken to prevent the propagation of COVID-19 can register on the platform.  These businesses offer vouchers for sale to customers, which can be redeemed as soon as commercial activity starts up again.  In the interim, the total amount of the vouchers is redistributed in full to the different shops, bars, restaurants, hairdressing salons, etc…  In fact, the JCI are acting in a voluntary basis and Promove supports this initiative in bearing the costs of all fees arising from bank transactions.
