Insurance To Cover Political And Commercial Risks For Small Business Exporters

This program targets new exporters and provides protection for the U.S. Small Business (SBA) program, per SBA requirements. Short-term credit sales, of less than one year, are insured against loss due to political and/or commercial actions. Protection is provided at 100% of the political risk (terrorism, war, etc.) and 95% of the commercial risk (i.e. currency devaluation). This program requires a $500 advance premium.
