Barbara Gill, Vice President at Evergreen Business Capital comments “it is a great pleasure and satisfaction to partner with First National Bank Alaska in securing the financing Scan Home, Inc. needed to grow their business. Scan Home, Inc. is a local business that is committed to the Anchorage community and we look forward to watching them continue to grow and contribute to our local economy.”
Carl A. Propes, Jr. is the founder and sole owner of Scan Home, Inc. He is an on-site, owner-operator and is active in all aspects of the day-to-day business. Scan Home, Inc. was founded in the summer of 1983 with five containers of furniture imported from Denmark and sold at the old sports arena in Anchorage. Their objective then and continues to be offering moderately priced Scandinavian furniture to the residents of Alaska. In 1984, Scan Home opened its first store on West 36th Street in Anchorage.
Evergreen Business Capital is proud to work with First National Bank Alaska and contribute to the growth of small businesses in our community. With our strong working relationship, we have approved eight SBA 504 loans during the fiscal year ending September 2014, totaling $9,688,378.

In recognition, Evergreen Business Capital recently presented First National Bank Alaska two Partnership Awards in 2014: Community Lending Institution of the Year and Northwest Lending Institution Community Bank of the Year. “We work shoulder-to-shoulder with small business owners in all regions of the state to offer local expertise that helps Alaskans overcome challenges and work toward financial success,” First National President Betsy Lawer said. “We are proud to play a vital role in financing new small businesses in Alaska and helping existing businesses expand.”

This financing was made possible through the SBA 504 Loan Program, which offers 10% down, low-rate, long term financing for capital assets like the purchase of real estate or equipment. As a Certified Development Company (CDC), Evergreen Business Capital is uniquely authorized by the SBA to offer this financing to small businesses in our community.
