Pula Advisors

At Pula, we are radically restructuring agricultural insurance, using technology to insure the previously unbanked, uninsured, untapped market of 1.5 billion smallholders worldwide.

We work in 12 countries across Africa and Asia, and in 2019, we facilitated crop insurance cover to over 1.3 million farmers across Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda, Nigeria, Mali, Senegal, Zambia, Ethiopia and Malawi. 

Pula is fast-paced, constantly adapting to new opportunities and challenges. We are a high-performance, multi-cultural team. We expect our team to value performance, results and professionalism.

At Pula, we are:

  1. Customer Obsessed: Pula’s insurance protects those who feed the world, and we are obsessed with delivering value to smallholder farmers as we build the systems that protect them against catastrophic risks together with global insurers, businesses and international NGOs. 
  2. Groundbreaking: We stretch the limits of what’s possible, bringing agricultural insurance to places where it has never been before. 
  3. Warriors in the trenches together: we recognize that building real sustainable businesses for agriculture in Africa are rare, and so we have to have each others back as we build this new Africa. 
  4. Make it happen: We execute at a high level, even in complex circumstances and with tight seasonal deadlines, with the goal of building a sustainable and profitable enterprise

We have been funded by venture capital investors (Omidyar Network, ACCION, MercyCorps) and global NGOs (MasterCard Foundation, CGAP/World Bank as well as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation).
