Microinsurance may support poverty alleviation by protecting the assets, income and productivity of low-income households. This study considers the potential role, opportunities and challenges for developing a microinsurance market in Ethiopia. The aim of the study is to develop as comprehensive as possible an information base of the current market dynamics as well as an assessment of the opportunities and challenges for microinsurance in Ethiopia. This will serve as starting point for a larger process to bring the relevant stakeholders (government, the insurance sector, potential clients and donors) together for a process of dialogue on actions required to develop the Ethiopian microinsurance sector.
