Extending mutual microinsurance to 5 million uninsured households in five countries over five years.

Interview with Tom Gitogo, CIC Insurance Group (Kenya)

In this interview Tom Gitogo, Group CEO of CIC Insurance Group (CIC) in Kenya, discusses how CIC's livestock microinsurance product will protect the lives and livelihoods of many low-income farmers in Kenya, by providing them with compensation if their cow dies.

CIC's livestock microinsurance product includes access to veterinary services for farmers. CIC is partnering with dairy cooperatives and SACCO's to distribute the product.

Preis Njenga, Chair of Kiambuu Dairy Cooperative, also talks to farmers about the benefits of insurance from her own experience.

On 11 July 2019, CIC launched a caravan roadshow to raise awareness of the product to livestock farmers in Kiambu County, Kenya.

Through the ICMIF 5-5-5 Mutual Microinsurance Strategy, CIC aim to reach 250,000 previously uninsured livestock farmers in Kenya. This project is being supported by partners P&V Group (Belgium), Thrivent (USA) and We Effect (Sweden).
