The microinsurance sector is an evolving sector, which is impacting how low-income individuals and MSMEs protect themselves against everyday risks.

The course is divided into 7 units that follow the order of the value chain for a microinsurance product. A step by step introduction of the most relevant aspects covers the conceptual and market research phase, product development, communication and marketing, distribution, and client relations management.
