Financing Business Across Borders

International funding of commercial real estate, infrastructure, energy, casinos, gaming, mining, and other such projects will be considered only if they demonstrate responsible funding structures and defensible underlying economics. Our minimum funding amount for transactions outside the United States is $5 million -- although exceptions can be made for situations in which subsequent, compelling opportunities are present for the minimum sizes.

Sectors of special interest for international funding include but are not limited to:

Energy -- including wind, solar, and other renewable energy projects, as well as more traditional energy initiatives such as coal, oil, gas, nuclear, and hydroelectric
Refining -- including biodiesel and ethanol
Commercial real estate development
Large trading or contract financing activities
Casino and gaming companies
Infrastructure finance

Outside of the U.S., we are primarily interested in the following geographies: Canada, Mexico, Central America, the Caribbean, select Latin American geographies, most of Europe, select Middle Eastern and African countries, China, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, other select Asian countries, Australia, and New Zealand.
Companies in countries with significant political instability or with stated national interests adverse to those of the United States will not qualify for funding. In addition, transactions that are deemed highly speculative or risky likewise will not qualify. Though our greatest interest will be in companies in countries with investment grade ratings (or that indicate robust opportunities for economic growth in the near term), our sources are not exclusively limited to those geographies.
As with other funding requests, we will require a brief executive summary in English and preferably converted into U.S. currency as an initial step for our analysis of international funding prospects.

International business loans are designed to help your business expand and flourish by moving into the international market. There are a number of sources for international business loans including banks and the Small Business Administration, or SBA, which is a US government organization.

Eligible businesses for the SBA's international business loan will need to prove that they can withstand the transition to going global and that they will be able to expand or develop export markets. Also, small businesses that have suffered as a result of international trade may be eligible in order to improve their position and keep up with the changing market. Similar eligibility requires will also exist with other lending institutions as well.
How to Apply

Many banks will require that your business has an impeccable credit history in order to be eligible for an international business loan; they don't want to take on a high risk loan for such a bold business move.  
Loan Specifics

Loan terms vary from lender to lender. It is important to ask the lender about all of the specifics and details of the loan including interest rates, loan repayment time, and collateral associated with the loan, as well as if there are restrictions on how the international business loan can be used.
