Commonwealth Trade Finance Facility

Helping Small States Get Access to Trade Finance

The Commonwealth Trade Finance Facility allows Commonwealth small states to access the finance they need to develop trade and sustain economic and social development, by encouraging international banks to make more trade finance available to them. The banks participating in the scheme will receive credit enhancement support through an innovative blended finance programme developed by the Commonwealth Secretariat and supported by India, Sri Lanka, Mauritius and Malta.
