Export Financing

FAS provides credit guarantees to encourage financing of commercial exports of U.S. agricultural products. By reducing financial risk to lenders, these credit guarantees encourage exports to buyers in countries — mainly developing countries — that have sufficient financial strength to have foreign exchange available for scheduled payments.

FAS export financing programs cover not only sales of  U.S. commodities and value-added products, but also infrastructure improvements in importing countries that can help facilitate imports of U.S. agricultural goods.

Programs

Guarantees repayment when U.S. banks extend credit to foreign banks to finance sales of U.S. agricultural products.
Export Financing Programs

Facility Guarantee Program

Provides credit guarantees for infrastructure improvements in countries where demand for U.S. agricultural products may be limited by lack of adequate facilities.
