In Our Communities

We are continuously working to better the communities in which we live and work.

At MasterCard, we believe that creating an environment that fosters financial inclusion through the power of entrepreneurship is woven into the fabric of our company. We’re always looking for ways to make an even greater impact in our communities.

As part of our commitment to promoting financial inclusion, we recognize entrepreneurship is important because it spurs innovation, employment and economic growth. Supporting entrepreneurship allows us to use our technology, our products and the knowledge and experience of our employees to help provide individuals with the ability to build stronger futures for themselves, their families and their communities.

Financial inclusion through the power of entrepreneurship can help address issues such as global youth unemployment, limited access to capital markets to create businesses and the struggle of small businesses to thrive and grow.
