Small Business Financing Profiles: Exporter SMEs

Small Business Financing Profiles is ongoing series of articles on segments of the SME marketplace and one component of the SME Financing Data Initiative's reporting efforts on SME financing. In this profile, exporter SMEs were found to be more innovative and growth-oriented, larger is size, and more likely to operate in the manufacturing and knowledge-based sectors. In regard to financing, exporters appear have higher capital needs, but face greater difficulty in access financing (e.g. lower financing approval rates) and are more dissatisfied with their financial institutions than other SMEs.
