The words of Hélène Forest,
Project Manager at FINANCE INNOVATION:
Inter-company credit needs to be better mobilized in order to secure both buyers and suppliers. In this respect, Reverse PME® has been recognized by the FINANCE INNOVATION cluster as a virtuous way of developing trade, particularly in 3 complex situations: better coverage of WCR on imports and domestic suppliers, financing of suppliers not eligible for factoring, and increased purchases from suppliers without exceeding credit coverage limits.
Last but not least, Reverse PME® is aimed at medium-sized companies, enabling Reverse Factoring to be deployed across the entire value chain, with an operational approach adapted to this less structured and more fragile market".
