The family of late Robert Mugumya is whistling all the way to bank after receiving shs100 million in life claims from Liberty Life Assurance.

Mugumya,a  member of Ssese Oil Palm Growers Association Sacco (SOPAG) had taken out a loan from the sacco to purchase land for farming  before he died.

“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 the  ‘AFYA plan’.
