Hello BP, 

I was looking for a lender in Puerto Rico, I’ve learned that even though Puerto Rico has almost all of the products and methods of the US not all US banks lend in PR. Any suggestions on a financial institution for a loan?

It's pretty difficult to get an investment mortgage at the moment. DSCR was available for a hot minute in 2022. If you are looking for a mortgage for a home or small multifamily and you have a W-2, you will find options. The 3 main banks here are BPPR, Oriental & First Bank. There are also some brokers and credit unions.

 Thank you so much, yes for a small multi family,  I’ve tried with first bank ( and they’re dragging their feet). I’ll reach out to the others. Thanks a ton for your input.

Yes, I've heard that with first bank, but to be fair, I've heard many people complain about all 3 of them.   You might check with smaller outfits too like Co/Lab lending, Preferred Mortgage, Aceland Mortgage, and co-ops/credit unions.

The only way to get a loan in PR is to use a bank in PR or has bricks and mortar in PR (PENFED being one of them). You can try the different COOPs on the island, as they seem to be decent.
