With the support of the BMZ through a new COVID-19 funding increase, we are now addressing the issues of business continuity and primary health care through microinsurance with our engagement in Nigeria.
Our aim here is to address business continuity issues for microfinance banks. We support micro-entrepreneurs in the informal sector who are exposed to health risks and urgently need health insurance and other basic insurance products, such as risk insurance for smallholder farmers.
The programme is part of a microfinance bank leadership training programme that involved 214 microfinance banks and a total of 348 participants. The programme consisted of two parts with four-day face-to-face trainings in Lagos, Ibadan, Owerri, Calabar and the Federal Capital Territory.
