The widespread health and economic impacts of COVID-19 have highlighted the critical need to support vulnerable populations, many of whom are disproportionately impacted due to existing inequities. As a long-time leader of financial inclusion programs, Mastercard recognizes that a long-term sustainable recovery is not possible unless more people are brought into the digital economy. Innovative partnerships and new business models, like the Jaza Duka micro-credit program created by Mastercard and Unilever, will be essential to achieve the financial inclusion and economic stability the world needs to realize an equitable recovery.
