    The State of Global Microinsurance

    When this project was undertaken, the benefits of financial services for the poor were universally acknowledged, however, the benefits of microinsurance (insurance for the poor), which had the potential to significantly aid millions of poor people, had received limited attention.  To better understand the state of microinsurance products and access, Kimetrica implemented a study to capture information to characterize the state of micro-credit globally.  Our team developed a web-based data capture, mapping and reporting tool to help a group of global researchers capture information on the status of microinsurance in over 80 countries.  The project raised awareness about microinsurance and promoted its benefits for the poor through data analysis and reporting. Data collected were organised in an online reporting tool -- the Global Landscape of Microinsurance -- which formed the bases of millions of dollars in microinsurance funding decisions from both the private and public sectors.

    East Africa Pastoralist Information System

    To better understand pastoralist livelihood systems and food security issues in East Africa, Kimetrica’s software engineering team developed a web-based information portal, allowing for the documentation of field data collection, discussions, and data analysis.  The application was the first web-based information system ever created to capture critical information related to livelihoods and livelihood strategies among vulnerable pastoral communities.  The data and the analysis that came from it helped to form Oxfam GB's regional pastoral community intervention strategies.
