FAQ

The EXIMBANK is here to support exporters and increase the business sector’s ability to earn foreign exchange, which is much needed in our country. Sometimes people call us the manufacturers’ bank, but the key for us is that you are exporting or you have plans to export. We then try to support exporters to get into new markets and to be able to increase exports and foreign exchange earnings. We do this by providing financial resources, be it credit, trade finance, or even prioritizing foreign exchange allocations, which are sometimes tough to get through the normal banking sector, especially for Micro, Small and Medium sized Enterprises (MSMEs).
