How to gain access to export finance. SME’s need funding to grow their exports and to manage payment risk against their buyers. Research shows that SMEs who export are a stronger credit than those who don’t. Banks are, despite public opinion, keen to lend to support exports. The risks for banks on properly structured export contracts are extremely low. Appetite can be found.
Why then, do so many SMEs have their export sales financing turned down? What are the main challenges? What solutions are out there? How should an SME start the process?
