Following on from the success of the ‘What’s next for digital financial services’ webinar in October, VisionFund International is hosting an online discussion about why the microfinance industry needs to fundamentally alter the way it thinks about insurance. A panel of speakers will explore the role of microinsurance as a tool for growth and discuss how well designed and appropriate microinsurance products help clients mitigate the risk of scaling their operations. VisionFund is one of the world’s largest microfinance networks, and is focused on serving the rural poor. The organisation’s micro-insurance and post disaster recovery lending efforts are at the forefront of the industry.
