"By selling their products to customers overseas, Sana International Commerce has been able to drastically increase sales and sustain American jobs," said Ex-Im Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. "I am proud that we supported a record level of exports by minority-owned businesses last year, and Ex-Im Bank remains committed to ensuring that business owners of all backgrounds have access to the financing they need to succeed."

"The support of the Ex-Im Bank has helped our company bloom," said Sana International Commerce Manager Rossie Ortiz. "When we started our operations, we often had to reject orders due to lack of capital. However, with the support of Ex-Im Bank, we have increased our sales and created jobs in our community."

The company, which was founded in 1994 and is based in San Antonio, Texas, sells and  repairs heavy industrial equipment for oilfield, locomotive, and marine industries. Over the past 19 years, Sana International Commerce has grown from a 2-person operation to a staff of 28. Since using Ex-Im Bank's working capital guarantee, the company's sales have increased from $400,000 to more than $8.3 million, and it has also added two divisions, Renewable Energy and Food & Beverages. Frost Bank of San Antonio, Texas was the lender.

In Fiscal Year 2012, Ex-Im Bank supported a record level of exports by women and minority-owned businesses – a 17 percent increase over the year before – and it is now the fastest growing sector in the Bank's small business portfolio.
