Funding for Alaska’s businesses

A range of financing options for small and medium-sized businesses, including long-term loans

We partner with the Alaska Industrial Development & Export Authority (AIDEA) to provide a variety of loan and refinancing solutions for Alaska businesses.

AIDEA loans offer:

  • Competitive, affordable rates and low fees
  • Fixed and variable rate loan options
  • A wide range of loan amounts, including larger loans
  • Longer term options than many conventional business loans

How can I use an AIDEA loan?

AIDEA loans can be used for just about any business purpose, including:

  • Developing, expanding, or modernizing your business
  • Buying, developing, or improving commercial real estate, from office buildings, warehouses, and manufacturing facilities to hotels and retail stores
  • Purchasing machinery, vehicles, equipment, supplies or inventory
  • Working capital
  • Refinancing an existing business loan

After you’re approved, you can set up automatic payments from checking or savings.

To qualify, your business must be located in Alaska and majority-owned by an Alaska resident. Your Commercial Loan Officer can go over your business details to help you determine whether you might qualify.

That depends on the specific program and type of loan. Some AIDEA loans require application fees, commitment fees, or third-party fees. In addition, late payment fees are assessed on all term loans.

Collateral is required for some AIDEA loans, but it depends on several factors, including the amount and purpose of your loan. If your loan requires collateral, it can be secured with accounts receivable, inventory, equipment, or real estate.

Unsecured loans, which don’t require any collateral, are also available in some situations.

No, you don’t have to be a member to apply, but you do need to apply and qualify to become a member to accept the loan. But don’t worry—it’s quick and easy to join Global.
