The Microinsurance Network, together with its partners at the ILO's Impact Insurance Facility, ADA and PlaNet Guarantee will host two regional workshops.
The first will take place on 14 May in Dakar, Senegal.
The workshops are intended to build on work already underway with insurance providers in Senegal and Burkina Faso. Studies conducted by our partners during past workshops found that microfinance — which offers an excellent route to reaching emerging micro-entrepreneurs and even SMEs — remains an untapped channel for delivering microinsurance products and services. The new workshops will aim to facilitate peer-to-peer learning among tier-2 and tier-3 microfinance institutions, as well as microfinance trainers and other key stakeholders in the field.
