This paper examines different types of agricultural insurance to find the best product to increase the yield of farmers in Aruppukottai, a small village in Tamil Nadu, India. The paper explores the best way to maximize the resources of my NGO, Khasanam, so as to have maximum impact in reducing the level of hunger in the village. It is found that a meso-level insurance policy is the most effective method to be used. The paper also puts forth a proposal that outlines how the meso-level insurance will be implemented to aid the farmers in the village.
