By protecting farmers financially from unpredictable weather shocks that may adversely affect crop harvests, bundled crop insurance products can help maintain farmers' livelihoods, especially smallholder farmers, who may have in the past gone into debt due to poor harvesting seasons. This is especially important as climate change continues to exacerbate weather conditions, with the worst effects often felt by poorer, rural communities and smallholder farmers who've often been the smallest contributors to this problem in the first place. Additionally, crop insurance programs can also help to uplift women farmers, especially those who may just be starting out. This is especially important since women tend to receive lower returns on their products when selling in markets, causing a noticeable income gap between women and men which can limit women's social mobility. Furthermore, in general, the existence of crop insurance bundles can help draw in greater numbers of people into agriculture including the younger generation by propping up farming as a potential career path with a more stable income.
