We would be delighted to help you further.

For major projects in Iran, eihbank offers structured EUR financing on the basis of buyer's credits in cooperation with its Iranian partner banks. This financing model, which we have been using successfully for years, enables Iranian companies to purchase goods abroad at favourable interest rates. European and non-European suppliers can help their customers in Iran obtain EUR financing via eihbank.

These buyer's credit financings with a total term of up to 5 years ensure, for example, the safety of Iranian local and long-distance public rail transport. A well-known European manufacturer supplied crane wagons to the Iranian state railway, which can also be used for rescue operations.
