Trade finance

On 25 July 2012, the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) supported exports from Caterpillar, Inc. Specifically, the bank guaranteed a USD 21.98 million loan to Ferrexpo Belanovo Mining located in Ukraine. The guarantee will support the purchase of products or services classified by the bank under the category 'Mining Machinery and Equipment - Except Oil and Gas'.

According to EXIM, its mission is to provide trade finance 'in cases where the private sector is unable or unwilling to provide financing or when such support is necessary to level the playing field due to financing provided by foreign governments to their exporters that compete with U.S. exporters'.

EXIM is the export credit agency of the United States that provides competitive financing to businesses to facilitate the export of U.S. goods and services to foreign buyers. The bank provides direct loans, loan guarantees, export credit insurance, and guarantees of working capital loans to help businesses compete in foreign markets.
