Bhojpur Farmers Attracted to Livestock Insurance Programme

28 June 2019

NEPAL - Local farmers have been attracted to livestock insurance programme in Bhojpur of late.

The farmers were attracted by the insurance programme as they would get their investment back if the animals died due to any reason.

Raj Kumar Rai, a local farmer of Aamchowk Rural Municipality said insurance would help in searching for alternatives if cattle died.

"The insurance policy should have come earlier," he said. Rai said many animals had died in natural disasters earlier and they could not afford to buy other animals.

"But farmers will get relief amount once the insurance programme comes into effect in the village," he added.

Lumbini General Insurance Bhojpur Chief Santosh Tiwari said the farmers had been attracted by the insurance programme as it would ensure safety and security for the animals being kept for dairy products and meat.
