U.S. exporters of capital equipment and services face a special set of challenges when attempting to win international sales. Foreign buyers who require extended-term financing may face prohibitively expensive borrowing rates in their home country, blocking them from buying U.S. products and services.
EXIM's loan guarantees support U.S. exporters in securing competitive financing for their creditworthy international buyers. By providing a loan guarantee to an American-based commercial lender, EXIM can unlock financing otherwise unavailable to a foreign buyer seeking to purchase U.S. products and services.
Medium and long-term loan guarantees are suitable for large scale projects involving the export of high-value capital equipment or services.
