The Export-Import Bank facilitates export financing of U.S. goods and services by matching export credit subsidies from foreign governments and by absorbing reasonable credit risks that are beyond the current scope of the private sector. In addition, the Export-Import Bank assists U.S. exporters in obtaining pre-export financing by guaranteeing export-related working capital loans from commercial lenders; guaranteeing loans made by foreign buyers; providing insurance assistance to the export community; and encouraging the purchase of U.S. goods through competitive, fixed-rate loans.
