The overall objective of the IBLI training is to help village insurance promoters to understand and appreciate how Index-Based Livestock Insurance works so that they help potential clients to make informed decisions about investing in the Insurance Livestock Cover. Since 2010 training manuals have been revised several times, therefore what you see is different version of training manual.

2010 & 2011 version

This was the first training manual that was developed for index-based livestock insurance and the content was meant for only Marsabit County because that was where index-based livestock insurance started.

2013 APA customized version

Customized version for APA was to make sales agents and pastoralist to understand the insurance company that is underwriting the cover, APA visibility and to make APA distinct from the previous underwriter. Also, the product was expanded to Isiolo County, so the revision was meant to capture the Isiolo units and experience.
