KAMPALA —Life insurance solutions provider, Liberty Life Assurance, has honored a UGX 100 million life claim of Late Robert Mugumya, saving the family from a huge loan burden.

“Mugumya Robert was not just a farmer; they were the embodiment of hard work, dedication, and resilience. Their passion for agriculture and commitment to his family were evident in every aspect of his life. Today, as we mourn with the family of their loss, we also celebrate the security and peace of mind that their credit life insurance policy has provided for their loved ones,” he added.

Liberty Life Assurance has also entered into a partnership with SOPAG, through the launch of a very affordable policy known as ‘AFYA plan’.
