Piloting Crop Insurance with Women Farmers
Over seven years of implementation, the GROW project has learned a great deal about women’s economic empowerment and food security in northern Ghana. The project team is happy to share our lessons learned in the GROW Learning Series, a set of documents we are releasing in 2018. Topics include women’s economic empowerment, nutrition and food security, financial inclusion, women and technology and conservation agriculture.

Within this Learning Series, the GROW team is producing three short briefs on the project’s financial services work, focusing on our crop insurance pilot, Village Savings and Loan groups and the targeted technical assistance provided to our financial services partners. This paper highlights GROW's experience piloting crop insurance for female farmers.
