The agreement will aim specifically at developing the capacity of insurance providers to offer valuable insurance products to low-income people, as well as at promoting collaboration and the exchange of good practices between countries.
 
Michal Matul, Chief Project Manager of the ILO´s Impact Insurance Facility was delighted at the collaboration, saying, “We are thrilled to collaborate with Africa Re to extend better insurance coverage to more low-income households, small enterprises and smallholder farmers.
