10 Challenges to sell agricultural insurance to small farmers. Demand Side 1. Smallholders Between 3-10 Ha Less than 3 Ha Between Ha More than 50 Ha
11 2. No insurance culture in rural areas. High costs to implement an educational campaign. Public and private sector could invest on insurance education. Farmers educational level: 2009 / No education / Incomplete Primary / Completed Primary / Completed Secondary / Superior
12 Supply Side 1. High transactionti costs highh insurance premium rates. t - Government needs to improve the information quality (yields, cost of production and crop losses due to climate). Government could subsidize in part or all the premium cost. Private sector could research mechanisms to reduce cost (for example can save on loss ajustment with weather index based insurance). 2. Limited insurance distribution channels for selling agricultural insurance. - Insurance companies could agree with governement to use some organizations or public programs as distribution channels.
