These guidelines are for donors who may receive requests to support initiatives in the relatively new field of microinsurance. They steer donors through the decision-making and monitoring process associated with microinsurance project management. The Preliminary Donor Guidelines are a work in progress, as is the practice of microinsurance. For this reason, the guidelines are not intended to promote microinsurance, but to offer a strong note of caution.
