Agricultural Insurance Initiative Coordinator, Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture
Rose Goslinga leads the Syngenta Foundation’s Kilimo Salama, the first micro-insurance product available to smallholder Kenyan farmers. Using mobile phones to cost-effectively and sustainably administer insurance and to collect and distribute crop production advice, Kilimo Salama insures farm inputs and harvests against both drought and excess rain. Over 21,000 farmers have experienced the benefits and peace of mind that come with insurance, leading them to invest more in their farms, raising productivity and increasing their food security.
