Acre Africa

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.


We have partnered with ACRE since 2015 and have executed a hybrid of successful initiatives including developing a village champion model.

  • The model has worked as a platform through which farmers and agri-preneurs are trained to increase uptake of agro-insurance products
  • The project resulted to increase in adoption of climate smart agricultural practices and improved awareness of agro-insurance products.
  • AIS surpassed the project targets (+240% growth vs original farmer target), and the model has since been replicated across other markets in the region
