No money but happy For 15 years now, a pensioner has lived comfortably using a swap and barter system in wealthy Germany. GERMAN Heidemarie Schwermer, 69, never thought she could go so long without money, but what begun as a 12-month experiment became a unique lifestyle 15 years ago. With only a touch of makeup, a light pink cotton sweater and a string of fake pearls, the elegant pensioner with a warm smile says she can hardly remember the last time she spent a cent. Instead, since 1996, she has lived by a unique scheme of swaps and barters she says has held her in good stead.

Heidemarie Schwermer’s Radical Experience 16 years with no money! Heidemarie Schwermer Experienced 16 years with no money Heidemarie Schwermer Experienced 16 years with no money. On May 1, 1996 a successful and wealthy 54-year old resident of Dortmund, Heidemarie Schwermer, teacher and therapist by profession, eliminated her bank account, handed out money and property to those in need and left the house in the "free floating" with one suitcase, into which she put a few personal items and pictures.

Heidemarie Schwermer - Interview with Jean-Christop I invite you to watch the video I shot last week in Paris with Jean-Christophe Capelli. I met JC for the first time in NYC, the day before the very first Finovate event back in 2007. Time flies... I am glad we finally managed to shoot an interview about the innovative, the first P2P Lending marketplace in France.We covered a lot during this session. I asked JC to introduce FriendsClear, talk about the challenges he had to overcome to launch in France, the partnership he managed to put in place with Credit Agricole PG to make the service available to the French SMEs, the successful contest they launched to increase the visibility of the service (with 120 applications from startups and SMEs).Even though Jean-Christophe couldn't share much stats except they are closing on to 500,000 euros of loans, he shared some exclusive info on their international growth strategy... Merci encore JC!
