ACRE Africa

Project: Village Champion Model – Ongoing Farmer Extension Service projects

ACRE Africa, the brand name of Agriculture and Climate Risk Enterprise Ltd, is a for profit company that links farmers to insurance products so that they can confidently invest in their farms. Acre works with local insurance firms and other value chain agricultural stakeholders to provide innovative agricultural insurance products to farmers across East Africa.


We have partnered with ACRE Africa and executed a hybrid of successful initiatives including developing a village champion model. The model has successfully worked as a platform through which farmers and agripreneurs are trained to increase the uptake of agro-insurance products. The project targets were surpassed by 240%, and the village champion model has been replicated across other markets in the region to create awareness and adoption of agro-insurance products.
