About Us

Building a global insurance safety net that is simple, easy to understand, and accessible to all.

The Micro Insurance Company was formed through the merger of TonkaBI, STP Insurance Services, and MicroEnsure which brings together resources, expertise and skills in underwriting, technology and distribution. Micro Insurance Company provides insurance to internet platforms, millions of micro & small businesses. At Micro Insurance Company, we are changing the insurance business. We are constantly working to create insurance policies that do exactly what insurance is supposed to do – provide a safety net to help people recover quickly from problems large and small. Over the last 300 years, insurance has not done such a great job of this, globally few people buy and it’s seen as complicated, expensive and untrustworthy.

We are dedicated to changing this perception of insurance, and we are doing this through our actions. So far, we have insured over 60 million people in 12 countries, and we are not slowing down anytime soon. We believe recovering from adversity should not be a privilege for only the wealthy and the few, which is why we are committed to distributing insurance to the world's low and middle-income people and micro businesses. To make insurance accessible, we are often required to solve complex problems. Every country we operate in requires different solutions that are unique to that region. Thus, we have created and implemented many innovative financial services which are distributed through e-commerce partners and platforms, banks, mobile networks and mobile wallets.

At Micro Insurance Company, we pledge to share our skills and ideas to enable other insurance companies to grow their own businesses and to reach more people. We believe together, we can reach 4 billion people.
