A Paris businessman has just won 22 million Euros in the lottery, and it may be just what he needs to save his 40-year old business. The businessman claims that, over the past year, revenue has fallen by 40%. This had meant delays in paying his suppliers, and even considering letting go of some of his staff.
But now, because of his win, the man says he can keep his staff employed and remain current with his suppliers. His big windfall, which is the second highest jackpot in France, will do a lot to help.
For himself though, a new home, a car, gifts for his wife and helping out his children are also in the works.
