Opportunity Gives Hope to Farmers in Need

Having been ravaged by four back-to-back typhoons, the Philippines is enduring a humanitarian crisis on a national scale. Farmers have lost entire crops, families have lost thriving businesses and community members have had to lean on one another for support.

The good news is that MicroEnsure, Opportunity International’s microinsurance subsidiary, and TSKI, one of Opportunity’s longest-standing microfinance institutions, are truly  helping the poor  in the Philippines to “weather life’s storms.” Smallholder farmers are rebuilding their lives and their farms with MicroEnsure’s weather-index crop insurance, which provides an automatic payout within 10 days of the storm.
