Campaign aims to create sustainable habit among small and marginal farmers to adopt for health, crop and livestock insurance,
Nudge2Include is an initiative to provide financial inclusion support to 1 lac farmers in the state of Odisha comprising 40% tribals and >35% female farmers in the disadvantaged segment. The campaign aims to educate them on insurance necessity, the impact of health risk in life, quelling fears on claims process, develop belief and habit to insure themselves and their livelihoods, prepare them not to fall prey to distress sale of their life savings. It will be done through a rigorous 3 years of hand-holding engagement, and most importantly, financially supporting them by bearing a significant part of their initial policy charges.
A nudge by initial hand holding, demonstrative learning for the farmers can open them to adopt and secure their life and livelihood through initiating a habit of insuring themselves, their crops and livestock.
This we do through inviting individuals, NGO's and FPOs to enrol farmer members from their organisations or general groups who qualify the criteria of land holding of 1 hectare or less.
