The Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) is the official export credit agency of the United States. Ex-Im Bank's mission is to assist in financing the export of U.S. goods and services to international markets.
Ex-Im Bank enables U.S. companies — large and small — to turn export opportunities into real sales that help to maintain and create U.S. jobs and contribute to a stronger national economy.
The Bank is working diligently to increase the number of small businesses exporting goods and services. In fact, about 85% of all transactions directly benefit U.S. small businesses. The agency supports U.S. exporters by providing working capital loan guarantees (pre-export financing to fulfill sales orders) and export credit insurance (to extend credit terms to foreign buyers and protect against nonpayment). It also provides support for foreign buyers to obtain competitive financing to purchase U.S. capital goods and services. No transaction is too large or too small for Ex-Im Bank.
