AFI was established to ease the financial burden of individuals and families.

While most individuals and families usually join burial societies to cover burial costs, the fact that most burial societies pay in kind (pay by rendering burial services, and not in cash), means that they do not provide for incidental funeral costs such as refreshments and catering. AFI closes this gap and provides cover for incidental funeral costs such as refreshments and catering
