Good news for dairy farmers as for the first time they will be protected under the Fiji Care insurance scheme.
Fiji Cooperative Dairy Company Limited Chief Executive Sachida Nand says that many farmers did not have any form of insurance before and improving their livelihoods is a priority.
Nand has assured the microinsurance is a good step forward for the farmers.
“Insurance is something that most of the dairy farmers wishes to have but unfortunately, within the previous providers or schemes, they couldn’t afford and this is something that has made insurance affordable to our dairy farmers.”
Nand says they will soon raise awareness of the microinsurance scheme and how it works.
