MILK Brief #8: "Doing the Math" - Cashless Funeral Microinsurance in Colombia

MILK Brief #8:

In September 2011 the MILK team partnered with MAPFRE Colombia in Bogota to study how policyholders and non-policyholders of MAPFRE’s CODENSA “Seguro Exequial” funeral insurance policy cope financially with the death of a family member. We implemented MILK’s Client Math methodology to better understand the financial tools available to and used by those with and without insurance and to conduct a quantitative assessment of the plausible gains to having insurance.

Quote of the Day

"I was stranded in New York City during the 2003 blackout, and for the next two years, I carried a small flashlight in my backpack. The flashlight did not cost much, but its potential to help in another blackout was obvious and to use it I needed only to press a button. For microinsurance to be accepted on a massive scale, it cannot cost much, its value must be obvious, and it must be simple to use." -- Brandon Matthews | Head of Microinsurance, Zurich Financial Services
