Washington Place Awarded VetLoan Advantage Rebate
Minnesota Business Finance Corporation (MBFC) is honored to present Jay Johnson, owner of HealthNorth, Inc. and Washington Place of St. Cloud, MN, our VetLoan Advantage Rebate for $3,000. MBFC is the only Certified Development Company in Minnesota to offer a rebate to business owners that are active or retired members of military service.
Washington Place is an assisted living business for area Veterans. The facility provides a safe living environment with board, lodging, meal services, and transportation to medical appointments for Veterans of Military Service. We are honored to present MBFC’s VetLoan Advantage to Johnson for his ongoing service to the Veteran community. Johnson used a SBA 504 loan along with financing from Dan Nygaard at BankVista to complete the purchase for the project.
Johnson is a Rocori H.S. graduate as well as a Saint Cloud State University graduate with a degree in finance and economics. He joined the Navy in 1987 and became a Naval Corpsman at Balboa Naval Station in San Diego, CA and was later transferred to Camp Lejeune, NC. He became a field medic with the Marines.
In 1989 Johnson was in a automobile accident which permanently damaged his spine and he is quadriplegic in ability. He has dedicated his life to helping others with disabilities, or special needs, live full independent lives. He started a company that designed the best standing wheelchair (VERTRAN) Vertical Transportation. He later sold that company.
In 2004 Johnson launched HealthNorth, Inc. which provides personal care assistance to individuals with disabilities and special needs. In addition he established HealthNorth Medical Supply Company to provide medical equipment and supplies to people with disabilities.

Minnesota Business Finance Corporation (MBFC) is honored to present Larry Koland and Jerry Kotzenmacher, owners of Inver Grove Storage & Rental, our VetLoan Advantage rebate check for $3,000. MBFC is the only Certified Development Company in Minnesota to offer a rebate to business owners that are active or retired members of military service.
Larry Koland and Jerry Kotzenmacher, together with their spouses, are partners in Inver Grove Storage & Rental, in Inver Grove Heights, MN. Both are employed full-time, but decided to start a self-storage business in 2003. As the business grew, and demand for storage space increased, they looked for expansion opportunities. Another storage facility in Inver Grove Heights presented the perfect opportunity to expand, and the SBA’s 504 expansion with refinance program facilitated the purchase. In 2017, Larry and Jerry decided to add a climate-controlled storage facility to this newest location. There was room for the new building, and with SBA 504 financing, the expansion project became reality.
Larry, Jerry, and their banker, Bill Lesher of Drake Bank, were all thrilled that the SBA 504 program was an option to obtain long-term, fixed-rate financing.
Larry is retired from the U.S. Air Force, and through MBFC’s Vet Loan Advantage program, received a rebate to offset some of the loan expenses
