Insurance is an important aspect of life. It is a way of making sure that you have enough funds to cover certain events and so it helps you manage your risks. The expenses incurred resulting from a an accident, leading to disability or death, may be more than any savings that a person may have accumulated over time.
However, not everyone has access to insurance due to high premiums and lack of access. This is where microinsurance comes in – insuring predominantly the low-income segment with protection against specific risks. Our microinsurance product will will cover the outstanding loan amount should there be Accidental Death or Permanent Total/Partial Disablement to the business owner or key person.
This will give the Issuer peace of mind as they concentrate on the most important aspect of their loan – expanding their business.
