KL Insurance Limited, a general insurance underwriter has received the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM)’s approval to play in Agric Insurance underwriting class of business.

The company said with the approval, it has positioned itself to drive Agricultural Insurance in Nigeria to the next level and provide farmers with necessary financial protection against losses.

Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer of KBL Insurance, Mrs. Ukachi Orji, said the management of the company was motivated by the drive to bring its specialists’ touch to providing lasting solutions and sustainable options to Nigerian farmers, whose businesses over the years, have faced a lot of difficulties, particularly lack of access to funds.

“We think it is a double jeopardy for the farmer, who amidst this situation, occasionally suffers disasters such as wildfire, pest attacks and some loss of crops and animals among others. KBL’s Agro Solutions are the answers to these long years of waiting, by our farmers. “We are here to lend them the shoulders to lean on, and cushion the effects of their various losses”, she guaranteed.

“What we are bringing to the market is in alignment with our Company’s strategic objectives and core values. We give our clients first-class treatment that they have never seen elsewhere.
