Credit Oman continues to provide its services to manufacturers and exporters through its insurance services that protect exporters from the failure of local buyers to pay whether inside or outside the Sultanate. It is also keen to diversify its future services that would support the private sector in the Sultanate, encourage the entrepreneurial and the SMEs sector to export their products to all parts of the world and expand as well the sale of products manufactured in the Sultanate and to international markets without being concerned of the buyers’ failure to pay.
