About Pula:
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 14 countries across Africa and Asia, and in 2019, we facilitated crop insurance
cover to over 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 other's 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).
