You are here

GIIF and ILO's Impact Insurance Facility jointly published a paper entitled "Unlocking Smallholder Credit: Does Credit-Linked Agricultural Insurance Work?"
 
Authored by Independent Researchers Richard Meyer and Peter Hazell and World Bank Group's Panos Varangis, this paper reviews possibilities for, and experience with, credit-linked crop insurance, including different types of insurance and credit arrangements, ranging from insurance sold to individual farmers to meso insurance sold to financial service providers (FSPs) to cover losses suffered by farmer borrowers.
