EXIM Chair Reta Jo Lewis Highlights How EXIM Will Help Exporters “Make More in America”
July 21, 2022 Office of Small Business and Office of Communications & External Engagement

In 2022, EXIM launched a new tool designed to unlock financing opportunities for U.S. exporters — including small businesses — that will increase their global competitiveness and support American jobs.

The Make More in America Initiative will make EXIM’s existing medium- and long-term loans, loan guarantees, and insurance available for export-oriented domestic manufacturing projects. The new program — approved in April by EXIM’s Board of Directors — is part of a whole-of-government effort to strengthen America’s supply chains.

"The Make More in America Initiative will create new financing opportunities that spur manufacturing in the United States, support American jobs and boost America’s ability to compete with countries like China,” said Export-Import Bank of the United States President and Chair Reta Jo Lewis.  “The global pandemic and other recent events have exposed supply chain gaps in critical sectors like advanced manufacturing and renewable energy. EXIM’s Make More in America Initiative will be a key tool in tackling these issues, and it will ultimately help America manufacture more and export more.”

EXIM Financing to Strengthen Supply Chains

Many American manufacturers — especially small- and medium-sized businesses — struggle to obtain the financing they need to compete for global sales. With a mission of supporting American jobs by facilitating U.S. exports, EXIM is ready to assist companies of all sizes and all types with export finance solutions that will help them grow.

The Make More in America Initiative will build on EXIM’s current products and services, providing access to capital needed to fill critical supply chain gaps. The initiative will have particular focus on small business exports ­— including companies owned by minorities, women, veterans, and those with disabilities (MWOBs) — as well as exports that are environmentally beneficial or transformational.
