Continental National Bank, the first Cuban-American national bank in the United States, is a South Florida leader in specialized SBA Loans. Positioned as one of the exclusive banks qualified to offer SBA 504 Loans, the independent community bank goes the extra mile with unparalleled personalized service and small business expertise.

As one of South Florida’s premier financial institutions with the ability to work with The Small Business Administration (SBA), Continental National Bank offers several types of SBA Loans, including the 504 Loan Program.

The SBA 504 Loan offers customers low down payments, lower interest rates, long term financing, including lease hold improvements to the property, as well as the ability to purchase fixed machinery and/or equipment.

Personal service is key for Continental National Bank where SBA Loan Specialist, Ivette Llopiz, treats her customers like family. From start to finish, she works directly with the business owner so that each and every step of the SBA 504 Loan process is finalized efficiently and correctly. Continental National Bank and Llopiz dedicate their time and expertise to developing long-term relationships with individuals and businesses in the community.    

“At Continental National Bank, our goal is to help members of the community succeed and build upon their dreams with the financial assistance they need,” said Llopiz. “Whether you need to buy commercial real estate, purchase business equipment, pay for inventory, fund an export development activity, or need working capital, receiving an SBA Loan from Continental National Bank can offer you exactly what you need to turn a dream into a reality.”
