SBA Export Express helps small businesses that have exporting potential but need funds to buy or produce goods, and/or to provide services, for export. It combines the SBA’s small business lending assistance with its technical assistance programs to help small businesses that have traditionally had difficulty in obtaining adequate export financing. Technical assistance is provided by SBA’s U.S. Export Assistance Centers, in cooperation with SBA’s network of resource partners, including the small business development Centers (SBDCs) and Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE). On approval of a SBA Export Express loan, an U.S. Export Assistance Center Representative will contact the borrower to offer appropriate assistance. This assistance may include training offered through the SBA’s Export Trade Assistance Partnership, SBDC International Trade Center, SCORE, District Export Council, or Export Legal Assistance Network.
