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

Video interview with Brian Merkel (Thrivent Financial, USA)

Brian Merkel, an employee of ICMIF member company Thrivent Financial (USA), visited Manchester (UK) in October 2018 to participate in a Technical Assistance assignment for the 5-5-5.

As an experienced Business Process Engineer, Brian’s task was to streamline and improve the existing processes of the 5-5-5 project.

Over the course of two weeks, Brian enjoyed the challenge of applying his existing skills to new markets and connecting with many different people both at the ICMIF head office and also with people working on the 5-5-5 projects out in the field. Brian’s work will also lead to greater efficiency going forwards in ICMIF’s mission to reach 5 million low-income households with microinsurance through the 5-5-5.
