Read about Onyinye, Ademola and Aisha and how they protect their businesses

Micro-Insurance for Small Businesses

Onyinye is a cook and owns a small restaurant in Onitsha. She is doing well. Ademola is a plumber and has a small shop in Ibadan. Aisha sells Ankara materials in a popular market in Kano. Mama Ochuko makes meatpie and delivers to schools. They all use these businesses to make money and support their families. They are doing well. However, there is always risk in business - theft, fire, flood, accidents, injuries, and so on. These businesses are too important to their families and the community for them to just suffer when something bad happens.
Did you know that Nigeria has something called MicroInsurance? A scheme that protects businesses when they suffer losses?
That is why we have designed this course to teach all businesses in Nigeria how to insure and cover their businesses so when something bad happens, you will be compensated and sometimes, get your business back to where it was before. This course is all about Microinsurance. It is one of the popular courses on our Academy. It comes in English, Pidgin, Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa,

Course materials were good, the mentoring approach was good, and working with other people via the Internet was good. The instructor did a good job of communicating and making it a more intimate arrangement. A lot of online courses fail because of isolation. I learned a lot.
