Microinsurance Learning and Knowledge (MILK) Project


Do low-income families really benefit from microinsurance?
Is it true that there is a business case for microinsurance?

The MILK Project, a three-year initiative of the MicroInsurance Centre at Milliman which ended in 2014, was designed to help answer these questions.

With support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and close collaboration with the ILO's Microinsurance Innovation Facility, MILK focused on providing answers to these questions based on data and research. Through a better understanding of client value and the business case in microinsurance, stakeholders are better informed, better prepared, and better able to make rational decisions about their interventions in microinsurance. By testing key assumptions, we also gained a more realistic vision for microinsurance.
