About this Episode
In this episode
Deputy CEO Mathilda Strom has helped Bima grow from a pilot in Ghana to an organisation bringing health, accident, and life insurance to millions of people in emerging markets. Bima is a leading InsurTech player that uses mobile technology to disrupt the global insurance industry and fuel financial inclusion.
“About a year ago, we paid out a claim to a woman in Pakistan…she has four children, and she lost her husband in a tragic, drive-by shooting. She then received, within two days of giving the death certificate of her husband to us, $3,000 from Bima as a claims payout, and she was then able to send her eldest son to graduate school, and then have enough money left over that she could support the rest of her children for up to two years in salary that her husband could otherwise have been able to contribute to the family. So this really does make a massive impact on the lives of the people that we’re serving.”
