Reimagining agricultural insurance to protect smallholders worldwide. At Pula, we are radically restructuring insurance, using technology and parametric insurance to insure the previously unbanked, uninsured, untapped market of 1.5 billion smallholders worldwide. We work across Africa and Asia, and in 2019 alone, we facilitated crop and livestock insurance cover to 1.1mln farmers and have offered our products in 11 markets from Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique. Since starting in 2015 our products have reached over 3.4mln households. Our Founders work in insurance has been recognized by several international awards including the Financial Times/IFC Award for Sustainable Finance, the Singapore Fintech Festival, Womens World Banking, Credit Suisse, and InsureTech3.0. We partner with organisations across multiple value chains, from agriculture to renewable energy including Fortune 500 Companies, Global NGO’s, Microfinance Instructions, Research Institutions, and Governments to help provide households the protection they need in an increasingly unpredictable climate.
