Greater possibilities through financial inclusion
Learn how we’re bringing millions of people into the financial fold
Promoting financial inclusion and literacy
Millions of people around the world lack access to the most basic financial tools. They don't have secure places to save money, reliable ways to transfer it or safe ways to transport it. Through innovation and education, we’re working to ensure that all people have an opportunity to participate in the global economy. Our products and solutions, as well as our philanthropic and financial literacy programs, bring the benefit of financial services to the unbanked and underbanked. This helps individuals to build a stronger future for themselves, their families and their communities.
Driving payment innovation and insights
At MasterCard, we're passionate about innovation. We know that the benefits of electronic payments far outweigh those of cash. And we use our data and insights to analyze and anticipate trends that impact payments. From major cities to developing markets, we’re creating products and solutions that fuel economic growth, efficiency and transparency. Importantly, we’re creating better payment experiences that benefit people everywhere.
Our commitment in action
The collaboration seeks to develop solutions that drive inclusive growth by broadening usage of digital financial services.
