The final goal is to develop a range of microinsurance products, as diversified as possible, and tailored to needs, as well as to implement microinsurance programs within MFIs and other distribution channels by operating know-how transfers.

To achieve its objective, PlaNet Guarantee builds strong partnerships between the different stakeholders of microinsurance: operator, insurers, reinsurers, microfinance institutions and other microinsurance delivery channels, technical solutions providers, etc.

These partnerships are essential as they bring in together the core expertise necessary to achieve PlaNet Guarantee’s primary goal: to provide sustainable and affordable microinsurance protection to low-income populations worldwide.

Project Description

In the framework of its activities, PlaNet Guarantee is implementing a feasibility study on index-based crop insurance in Kenya. Index-based crop insurance is gaining attention as an important tool to help cope with climate risks that small-scale farmers face. Insurance is paid when the threshold defined by the index is reached.

Thus, the index functions in a systematic way and avoids problems of fraud and high costs linked to claim settlements and these costs savings can be transferred to the farmers in the form of lower premiums.

The index can either be based on the climate (weather stations or satellite data) or on the average yield. The index’s advantage lies in the fact that it is objective, easy to check and transparent.

PlaNet Guarantee proposes to conduct the following activities:
  • Determine the feasibility of index-based crop insurance in the Kenyan context
  • Build the index and the product
  • Test the commercial viability of the product
The Project will aim at reaching the following specific objectives:
  • Possibility to build a crop insurance index
