Become an EDN Originator

The network of EDN Originators is comprised of financial institutions, business consultants, associations, law firms and regional investment promotion agencies. Loan and Political Risk Insurance Originators work with Business Enterprises to develop finance, technical assistance or insurance application packages. Originators assist the Business Enterprise during the application process, from initial screening to approval and negotiation. Additionally, EDN Originators can provide other business services such as: refinement of marketing strategies, drafting or enhancing business plans, feasibility studies, training and other business improvement activities.

We encourage you to review the information on this website regarding how the EDN Program works. Please check out About EDN and the EDN News page for further information.

If you would like to submit an application to join the EDN Originator network, we encourage you to first review a draft of the EDN Loan Originator Agreement and/or EDN Political Risk Insurance Originator Agreement.

The Originator application process commences with creating an EDN account.  Access an existing account or create a new account.

If you have any questions regarding the Originator Application process – either initially or any time during the process – you can reach the EDN Manager at
