Accessing EXIM Bank loans facilities through your Banker
You will be happy to know that you can still benefit from EXIM Bank’s concessionary loan rates by going through your Banker. It is quite likely that your Banker — whether a commercial, merchant or investment banker, is one of our Approved Financial Intermediaries (AFIs), These AFIs are authorised access points for the following EXIM Bank loan facilities:
- SME Growth Initiative
- Bankers Export Credit Facility
- General Trade Line.
If you already have a borrowing relationship with your Banker you may prefer to apply through that Bank. Just let your Banker know that you want to apply for an EXIM Bank loan and they will be happy to guide you through the application process.
