Nibedita from Green Delta Insurance is a one stop insurance solution for safeguarding women’s economic security, personal safety and healthcare needs.

Green Delta Insurance have created Nibedita, a complete service covering female insurance and safety needs in Bangladesh. They have achieved this through a combination of broad insurance options tailormade for Bangladeshi women, a digital platform with lifestyle and healthcare information, and a mobile app that can be used in times of emergency. The app contains a panic button, which sends instant messages to friends, family and law enforcement agencies regarding the user’s whereabouts and a request for immediate help. Green Delta Insurance’s comprehensive scheme is the first female-targeted insurance product in South Asia.
