Export Express Loan Program

Flexible and easy to use, the Export Express loan program provides loans or lines of credit for export development. Your company needs to be in operations for 12 full months or more and be able to demonstrate that the loan proceeds will be used to support export activity.

Export Working Capital Program (EWCP)

This program provides working capital advances on export orders, export receivables, or letters of credit. Exporters can apply for EWCP loans in advance of finalizing an export sale or contract. With an approved EWCP loan in place, your business has greater flexibility in negotiating export payment terms—secure in the assurance that adequate financing will be in place when you win the export order.
