Royal wants youth loans

Segolene Royal has previously said she wished to provide start-up loans to French youth, but had never put a price tag on it. Today she has announced that if elected, she will guarantee any young person (no ages were specified) 10,000 euros "to build his first project for life".

"No young person must remain with unemployment more than six months without a formation or a contract not being proposed to him. (...) I propose to generalize the purses and the employment-springboards that some regions have installed successfully. It is what I call the right of the young people to their first employment."
