Caisse d'Epargne Normandie: a committed bank

Ahead of its time, the Caisse d'Epargne played a major role in the emancipation of women, in particular by allowing them, from 1881, to have their savings account without the consent of their husband. 84 years before the law recognized their financial independence in 1965.
True to its values, Caisse d'Epargne has regularly demonstrated its commitment to the place of women in society. It therefore focused more specifically on supporting, promoting and accompanying female entrepreneurship, a factor of economic development and societal innovation.
A pioneer, the Caisse d'Epargne still is when it signed with the State, a first framework agreement, renewed in 2018 which targets 40% of women entrepreneurs by 2020. It is again with the launch of #FemmesDeTalent, a program dedicated to the promotion of leadership women in the entrepreneurial field as in the sports field.
And it is particularly so in Normandy, when it creates a specific credit offer “0% female entrepreneur loan” reserved for women benefiting from the guarantee initiated by the State, EGALITE Femmes (formerly FGIF), distributed by the Normandie Active network. It also provides them with its wealth advice experts.  
It is through these various lasting and tangible actions that the Caisse d'Epargne Normandie, alongside the Norman networks in the lead, Women and Challenges, the Pioneers, Tous pour Elles, affirms and reaffirms its commitment to women entrepreneurs everywhere. Normandy territory.
