Looking to expand into overseas markets?
Whether you are entering the export market, looking to upgrade your equipment or facilities in preparation for exporting, or helping your international buyers do business with you - there's a U.S. government financing program that can help.
In fact, small businesses now constitute 34 percent of total export dollars, and comprise approximately 97.8 percent of all exporters. Of course, success in exporting doesn't just lie with financing. SBA also provides counseling and training (via U.S. Export Assistance Centers and SBA's online Learning Center ) to ensure that small businesses have the tools they need to tap into the global market. Since FY 2009, SBA has guaranteed 6,400 loans to small business exporters worth over $3.3 billion, generating over $6.3 billion in exports.
