  • creating a pool of experts from ICMIF members providing technical support;
  • at least 30 technical support assignments on operational, strategic and legislative matters completed by the end of 2021 resulting in measurable improvements in ICMIF member’s capabilities and outreach to deliver mutual microinsurance (including microtakaful);
  • support to ICMIF members to provide microinsurance locally;
  • perusing legislative and regulatory change to facilitate the growth of mutual microinsurance; and
  • developing a pipeline of projects and organisations for potential funding for the ICMIF 5-5-5 Mutual Microinsurance Strategy.
