Meet the Face Behind the App: Kilimo Salama

On October 2, 2012, the USAID FACET project hosted a webinar presentation on Kilimo Salama, a service that offers smallholder farmers access to indexed micro-insurance against either drought or excessive rains. The service is unique in that farmers purchase it through local agro-dealers along with their inputs, using solar powered weather stations, and SMS and mobile payments to reimburse farmers.
