Why not consider an index trigger for the cash transfer?

Thank you for the interest and the question. It's an excellent point that we have been considering. The current design has no index trigger for the business losses but we are planning to have discussions with the insurance companies to turn this into a parametric insurance product. We think that will also help it scale.
