 U.S. Small Business Administration  Assistance in Exporting & International Trade



SLWTA November Program
              
The Stateline World Trade Association will
welcome John Nevell of the SBA as our speaker on Thursday, Nov. 20.
Please make plans to join us!

Many small businesses think they are too
small to compete in the world market. In fact,
however, 97 percent of all exporters are small
businesses.  As you consider the various
governmental resources available to you to
help expand your international business
activities, the U.S. Small Business
Administration is one resource you cannot
afford to ignore.  The SBA and other agencies
of the federal government offer loans,
insurance and grant programs to help you
become an exporter or expand your exporting
business.
Join us on Thursday, November 20 in Beloit
for an informative presentation by John
Nevell of the SBA on the programs and
resources available to U.S. businesses.  Some
of these include loan programs such as:
- SBA Export Express (offering financing up
to $500,000);
- Export Working Capital Loan (advances for
up to $5 million to fund export transactions);
and
- International Trade Loan Program (offers a
combination of fixed asset, working capital
financing and debt refinancing with the SBA's
maximum guaranty- 90 percent- on the total
loan amount).
