Application process

Appling for production loan guarantee

Who can apply?

It is the exporter’s bank that applies to Eksfin for support of its loan to the exporter.

Eksfin has the same terms as the bank.

If the bank is inclined to disburse a production loan, the bank may submit an electronic application asking Eksfin to share the risk of the loan on the same terms as the bank.

The exporter’s bank is required to issue a loan and assume its own risk for the portion that Eksfin’s guarantee does not cover.

How to apply?

How much does it cost?

Eksfin charges the same premium as the bank’s risk premium.
