Optimising impact: pairing inclusive finance and insurance

Many people are familiar with the concept of inclusive finance, particularly in the form of microfinance, through which millions of people around the world have gained access to formal financial services for the first time. However, the concept of inclusive insurance is still relatively new, despite the role that insurance can play to protect vulnerable households.  In most developing countries, social protection is very limited, and insurance is not generally designed to meet the needs of consumers and micro-entrepreneurs. Microfinance institutions (MFIs) can use insurance to protect their own loan portfolios, but they can do far more than this.

Join  the 47th Midi de la Microfinance to learn more about how, with the Women’s World Bank as a case study, MFIs are using insurance services to increase their impact and strengthen their business models at the same time.
