This list represents a selection of ATI projects

Sector:
Agriculture
Insurance Type:
Whole Turnover Credit Risk Insurance
Project:
Flower Exports
Maximum Sum Insured:
$490,000

A major flower producer has been growing and exporting T-Hybrid roses for the past 10 years. Their hydroponically grown roses are environmentally safe using liquid fertilization that is fully recycled and absent any hazardous nitrates or phosphorous. Since 1996, the company has expanded its operations and exports to buyers in some 13 countries located in Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The company took out its first policy with ATI in 2004 to protect its sales against the risk of buyer payment default. In 2007, ATI paid a claim arising from the payment default by one of its buyers. Confident with the protection it was receiving, the company renewed its cover with ATI for a fourth time.

Insurance Type:
Whole Turnover Credit Risk Insurance
Project:
Agricultural Exports
Maximum Sum Insured:
$1.7 million

The agricultural sector is steadily expanding in Zambia but high fuel costs, difficult access to financing, and a difficult export market present challenges. Since 1960, a major farm near Lusaka has grown vegetables for export to international markets and, in the 1980's, it added roses to its export products.

Employing 3,800 workers, the farm needed Export Credit Risk Insurance to protect itself against non-payment of its buyers in the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom. ATI stepped in with a Whole Turnover Credit Risk Insurance cover to protect the company's export sales.

Exports of Fresh Produce
Maximum Sum Insured:
$55,000

A Kenyan agri foods exporter obtained ATI’s insurance to protect against non-payment of their United Kingdom-based buyers. 

The agriculture industry is Kenya’s top foreign exchange earner, replacing the recession-impacted sectors of tourism and remittances. The global economic downturn has impacted negatively on this sector as exporters face increasing risks of non-payment by their foreign buyers due to a drop-off in global demand and an increasing level of insolvencies. This project supports the survival of a vital sector that contributes 60% of the country’s total earnings and employs 75% of the population.

Project:
Production of biomass wood products
Maximum Sum Insured:
$66 million

The use of charcoal, especially in Africa, has raised concern among environmentalists and those responsible for forest development. In 2000, nearly 470 million tons of wood was consumed in homes in sub-Saharan Africa in the form of charcoal, more wood per capita than any other region in the world. With ATI’s support, a European firm will harvest an environmentally friendly fuel substitute, hevea, which will be processed into briquettes, pellets or chips, and used as a substitute for charcoal. The company also plans to replant bamboo in order to increase forest cover – a move that will assist the DRC government with its clean development policy.
