This data will be incorporated into actionable tasks to reach untapped market potential within lesser-reached communities such as farmers and fishing communities. According to Mr. Gajendra, this segment of society is largely unaware of the benefits that life insurance provides to them.

‘Sanasa Life Insurance’s beginnings were based on helping small-scale farming communities overcome their financial difficulties by creating cooperative-based institutions that lent sums of money to overcome their financial challenges. It is this same core functional ethic that we still incorporate by reaching out to these communities and bringing resolute solutions through life insurance’ he says.

Under Mr. Gajendra’s direction, Sanasa Life Insurance PLC unlocks its potential for an exciting and dynamic future where life insurance will be an affordable solution for all communities within the country, in the near future.
