About NRSP

 

How it Started

NRSP Microfinance Bank Ltd. is one of the leading microfinance banks in Pakistan. It commenced its operations in March 2011 with a strong social mission to provide financial services to poor and marginalized clients including small and landless farmers. The Bank also offers quality banking services to its valued clients including Government and private institutions. 

NRSP Bank adheres to internationally recognized Corporate Governance and prudent banking practices. This has enabled the Bank to double its equity within 5 years. As part of offering innovative products and services, the Bank is also privileged to be the 1st regulated provider of Islamic microfinance services in Pakistan. 

NRSP bank’s capital has been thoroughly fuelled by prominent organizational holdings so to speak: the international Finance Corporation, Acumen, KFW and simultaneously the National Rural Support Program itself. The bank has managed to spread its longevity across the country by establishing about 107 branches across 33 districts; its services offer a range of financial provisions including Deposits, Micro-Credit and Micro-Insurance to the ‘uninitiated’ portion of the country’s population.

The PACRA and JCR-VIS Credit Rating Company limited has acknowledged the bank’s status by simultaneously upgrading its Long Term entity rating to A and Short Term to A-1.
