Find Export Grants and Loans
Limited access to credit can limit access to growth. Without working capital at competitive rates, exporters can’t pay for the resources needed to produce finished goods for shipping, cover standby letters of credit, apply for credit insurance or finance foreign receivables.
But export finance is more than just money. Businesses also need expert assistance to understand and mitigate foreign trade risk, assess a prospective buyer’s creditworthiness, negotiate contracts and obtain payment.
The Washington State Department of Commerce and other public/private entities can help small and mid-sized businesses find finance solutions through little-known resources that provide much needed financial support to successfully enter international markets.
