Livestock insurance strengthening resilience of rural communities in Bolivia

Monday, September 17, 2018

Network member Fundacion PROFIN, together with Banco Union have rolled out a livestock insurance product for dairy cattle, which covers accidental death, specific diseases or climatic events.

The cover is accessible for small-holders and grants them indemnity of 80% on the insured value of each animal. The initiative has been implemented since 2017 and the initial results are encouraging. After one year, 1123 dairy cattle have been insured, with more than 460 dairy herders becoming financially included.
