Field Investigator in Micro Insurance Academy(from 27/08/2008 to 30/12/2008) under Project on Evidence-based studies, training and advisory services for micro insurance units serving the poor.
Community-based micro insurance units represent the highest hope for the extension of insurance coverage among the uninsured poor. However, micro insurance schemes need help in customizing their insurance to the risks and conditions they face, at affordable premiums, through a process that they trust. The MIA offers innovative, context-specific solutions to those needs, delivered through its network of affiliated training institutes.
The Micro Insurance Academy develops and offers capacity building for successful implementation of micro insurance. The MIA focuses primarily on enabling local communities, i.e. the micro insurance clients themselves, to play an active and empowered role in their insurance. We also train micro insurance promoters at community, state and national level, as well as the staff of NGOs and donor agencies dealing with micro insurance.
My Role and Responsibilities:
The research project here aims to create insight on how to enable en-bloc affiliation of entire communities into (micro) insurance. En-bloc affiliation promises many advantages for insurance, such as:
Reduced admin and transaction costs (and hence lower loading on the premium);
Faster expansion of insurance;
Use of information that flows locally free of charge to improve the internal distribution of costs (encouraging an informal intra-village cross subsidy based on local information of wealth and of economically weaker members of the group.
