According to the figures, seven SCOPs [sociétés coopératives et participatives] out of ten are still active five years after their creation“, explains journalist Julien Duponchel, against six out of ten traditional businesses.”One of the possible explanations can be found in the very statute of these SCOPs: they are indeed obliged to put 15% of their profits in their reserve. Nobody can touch it and that, in times of crisis, it allows to have the kidneys a little more solid “, he adds on the set of 19/20 of France 3, Tuesday June 22.
