In October 2011, Circle Market in Accra, Ghana was devastated by a torrential flood that destroyed many small businesses. The MILK Project, in partnership with MicroEnsure-Ghana and GIZ, conducted a Client Math study in January 2012 to assess the effectiveness of a property microinsurance product called Obra Pa - a product offered by MicroEnsure-Ghana in partnership with insurer Star Assurance. The study investigated the ways in which insured and uninsured entrepreneurs coped with the flood and thus explored the value of this type of coverage.
