AMSTRONG AMASAE’S STORY
Papua New Guinea
"I am really grateful to BIMA Family Life. The money will be used to make sure that my brother’s kids continue going to school and have a bright future" ~Aki Amstrong
PAPUA NEW GUINEA
Amstrong Amasae was a father of two living in Henganofi in the Eastern Highlands of Papua New Guinea. He purchased Family Life insurance by paying for his coverage through his Digicel airtime credit. For a daily cost of less than an SMS, Amstrong was able to insure his life and protect the future of his family.
Unfortunately, Amstrong passed away in November 2014. Following his death, Family Life paid his brother and registered beneficiary, Aki Tevefa 12, 000 kina (US$ 4,500). This money will be a vital source of income for Amstrong’s family at this difficult time. Thanks to the payout, his family was able to lay Amstrong to rest in his hometown.
BIMA Family Life is offered in partnership with Digicel. Prices start from just US $1.30 for up to US $4,500 in cover.
LYDIA LARBI’S STORY
"Tigo Insurance provided vital funds when my family needed it most" ~ Lydia Larbi
Lydia, a mother of four, runs a convenience store in Dansoman, a small suburb of Accra, Ghana. Lydia’s husband ran the store until he passed away suddenly from illness. Then Lydia became the sole breadwinner and had to learn how to manage the family business as well as caring for her family.
During this difficult time, Lydia remembered that she had signed up for a life insurance product through Tigo. She took the relevant documents to her local Tigo branch where she completed the straightforward claims process. Within three days of filing, Lydia received her full claims payout.
Bima’s payment provided vital funds for Lydia’s family when they needed it most. Lydia now sells mobile airtime cards at the store, to help spread power of insurance throughout her community.
