THE BANK'S MISSION
"Our mission is to win the trust of the communities we serve by providing exceptional financial services and products with honesty and integrity."
Since 2003, Amistad Bank, through sound, consistent, conservative and stable leadership, has become a viable financial institution in the Del Rio market. Building upon its strengths and experience in real estate, from the board of directors to department managers, Amistad Bank has created a solid niche in real estate lending. This expertise ranges from commercial and industrial real estate lending to interim construction and mortgage lending for single family residences. Apart from the niche in real estate lending, management has focused attention towards commercial lending, specifically, small businesses.
THE BANK'S CORE VALUES
Amistad Bank is rooted in its independence and community bank oriented spirit. At Amistad Bank these core values are not subject to change.

Previously a branch of Big Lake Bank, N.A. Amistad Bank was purchased and formed in 2003 by the Eden Financial Corporation. In 2009, the bank began a major remodel of its facility, basically demolishing almost all of the previous building. On February 1, 2010 management and staff moved into our brand new 6,000+ square foot building. The new bank building is designed to reflect the border architecture of stucco mission design. The interior complements traditional Spanish design with colorful artwork depicting wildlife of the area.
Our team is bilingual from the President down which allows the staff to provide exceptional customer service, in both English and Spanish. The bank offers an array of deposit products for consumers and businesses, including our high yield amigo checking account, friendship club account, the best club account in our area, many other checking, savings, money market, IRA and IOLTA accounts. Twenty-four hour banking has never been easier with Amistad's internet banking services.
