MICRO INSURANCE

This is a new intervention of Sampada. Women in the villages felt the need to secure their lives and livelihoods; however, the insurance service was not accessible to the rural poor. Considering the demand from the rural areas and the need of security for women, Sampada initiated provision of insurance policies at their doorsteps.

Sampada functions as a corporate Agency on behalf of two major insurance companies in order to provide “at-the doorstep” services to women in remote rural areas who otherwise would have no security cover whatsoever. Risk coverage is provided by way of life as well as general insurance. Health insurance is now offered on a pilot basis

During the period from 1st April 2008 to 31st March 2017, 128,844 persons have been insured
