The method used is qualitative design with some quantitative elements. Data were collected through a field survey of 390 growers who have purchased the rainfall insence contracts. Factor Analysis, Principal Component Analysis, Kaiser-Meyer-Olkin, Bartletts Test of Sphericity, and Kaisers Varimax rotation were used to measure the sample adequacy and to extract the factors affecting the rainfall index insurance. In this study several variables impacting rainfall index insurance have been identified for factor analysis. On the basis of Varimax with Kaiser Normalization, eight factors have emerged. These include: Rainfall Risk, Trigger Rainfall, Sum Insured, Rainfall Risk Protection, Basis Risk, Claim Settlement, Payout, and Premium. The study highlights the impact of factors on the performance of RISC. The findings reveal the need for redesign and recasting existing Rainfall Insurance Scheme for efficient risk management in coffee industry.
