The Microinsurance Catastrophe Risk Organization (MiCRO), a micro(re)insurance facility that helps Haiti’s micro-entrepreneurs protect themselves against the economic aftermath of severe natural catastrophes, has been awarded “Company Launch of the Year” at The Review’s annual Worldwide Reinsurance Awards.
