Microfinance Microinsurance

Learn how we support families in poverty with microinsurance to keep their lives and businesses going in the face of unexpected hardship.

With new opportunities to earn an income and invest in assets, families living in poverty need support to ensure they won’t lose everything should something go wrong. Living in developing countries, families living in poverty are vulnerable to a range of hardships – yet very few have any type of insurance to protect them.

This is where microinsurance comes in. Understanding the vulnerabilities families face such as natural disasters and illness, microinsurance offers security against unexpected hardship via:

  • Crop insurance
  • Loan insurance
  • Heath insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Property insurance.

After using a small loan to start an eatery in her village in the Philippines, Rosalie  (pictured) took out low-cost microinsurance to protect her family in case something should   happen to her. Because she’s using her income to send her children to school, Rosalie  wanted to make sure they’d be able to continue their studies whatever happened.  Your support provides security to families like Rosalie’s, helping them stay above water when an unexpected hardship occurs.
