Exports breathe new life into businesses. They transform whole communities through job growth. And that’s what the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im) delivers: global tools that reap lasting local benefits.
That’s especially true when it comes to Ex-Im’s work with small businesses. Last year, Ex-Im set a record for the number of small business transactions — $37 billion in exports that in turn sustained more than 200,000 American jobs at 3,400 companies. Nearly 90% of Ex-Im’s authorizations directly served small companies—another historic high. Tens of thousands of smaller companies that supply goods and services to large exporters also benefit from Ex-Im’s activities.
