Hello Kate,
Thanks for your interest in this project, we are still piloting and here we have profiled over 15 districts in Uganda now. We are also in negotiations with two of East Africa's largest insurance companies including UAP and Jubilee insurance, they are really happy with the startup since it exposes them to their biggest untapped market. We are planning to have on board all the insurance companies in Uganda both current and new market players by 2018 who will be pay subscription fees to access the platform on our website.
Our next step is to hit the target set by our first two potential clients to cover 40 districts then we can start full operations.
Sensitizing the smallholder farmers is also currently done by our marketing team, it will be great to know that they are finally covered from such losses which is our top objective.

Thank you Manon  for that observation, with our pilot I truly found that sensitization is the most important, we realized that our customers do not see the value in our product before we look to sell to them. We are going to put in place a team of 16 youth who will work mainly to sensitize all the target market we are starting with, so to answer your question yes it is part of our product cost.
