Transforming lives

We see a world that is very connected for some, but not for all; we see technology doing much good, but two billion adults remain locked out of the formal financial system.

With the power to expand connectivity, opportunity and prosperity for all, Mastercard® is leading the way toward a World Beyond Cash™. Our International Development team is charged with using this proven expertise to design inclusive financial services solutions and infrastructure to help the underserved.

We seek to support a well-functioning financial ecosystem that enables financial service providers to offer a full range of affordable and convenient services that meet the needs of a diverse set of consumers, notably the unbanked.

To do so, we engage partners in the development community to jointly deploy or develop programs that address barriers to inclusive growth and showcase the ability of electronic payments to transform lives.
