Additionally we have a system of bills that members may withdraw from their electronic accounts,from listed shops/members. We are working on additional motors for the system. One is a shop member shop for a cooperative that accepts lets and gives lets members the possibility to sell new products in lets, all or partly. The second motor is a new building cooperative that integrates lets and gives people work for lets, and gives them the possiblity to rent for lets. Housing, food and necessities will boost the lets market. That is our expectations, but the work is a long time procedure.
