February 09, 2023 Jane Lemons, Business Development Specialist

As the number of U.S. Black-owned businesses continues to grow, the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) underscores that success by offering trade finance tools to help these companies begin or expand their export sales.

To commemorate Black History Month, EXIM is highlighting the resources available to support U.S. businesses as they export their American-made goods and services to the global marketplace.

EXIM’s Minority and Women-Owned Business Division (MWOB) works closely with organizations that have a minority trade focus, to help spread the word to underserved communities about EXIM financing and create opportunities for export-ready U.S. businesses that are owned by minorities, women, veterans, and people with disabilities. As part of this outreach and education effort, EXIM is hosting a free webinar:
