EXIM Export Working Capital Financing

No-cost webinar presented using Microsoft Teams.

EXIM plays the role of guaranteeing an export loan thru your bank or private lender to help secure financing for international sales.  A lender receives a loan “guarantee” from EXIM, guaranteeing repayment for a percentage of the loan if the borrower ((i.e., U.S. exporter) defaults. You can use the loan from your bank to pay for the labor, materials, and other inputs required to fulfill export sales. EXIM doesn’t replace your private bank; it simply backs their loan and increases your borrowing power. If you have a need to get financing to fulfill your export order or export project, you can take advantage of this EXIM program.
