• A maximum of five (5) years with provision for a moratorium on principal payments for up to one year.
• A graduated repayment plan including ballooning can also be negotiated.

The programme is open to any company registered and operating in Jamaica that is engaged in export; otherwise earns foreign exchange and/or has a link to the Export Sector. Participants are required to show evidence that they are certified under:
