JMMB Merchant Bank serves as a facilitator for loans offered by EXIM Bank Jamaica under their Bankers Export Credit Facility (BECF). These loans aim to encourage the production and exportation of Jamaican goods and services by making short-term funds available for working capital either on a pre-shipment or a post-shipment basis.

Jamaican exporters are able to obtain financing for the purchase of raw materials for conversion into finished goods for export or to procure for export other locally produced goods. Loans are also available for exporters who need working capital to finance their operations while they await payment from their purchasers.
