Lenders often will not provide medium- and long-term financing to buyers in emerging markets. The political and commercial environments in many foreign markets translate into high risk for many lenders. Moreover, credit from in-country lenders is often unavailable or prohibitively expensive to buyers. Thus, without financing, a U.S. exporter will not be able to make the sale. Ex-Im Bank's medium- and long-term financing support fills this void and enables U.S. exporters to compete with confidence worldwide.
This product allows you to increase your export sales on payment terms by protecting you against nonpayment when you extend credit to your international buyers. You may also obtain financing for your foreign receivables by assigning your insurance policy.
Ex-Im Bank's working capital guarantee gives lenders the confidence to extend short-term loans to small- and medium-size businesses for their export funding needs.
