Master Your Card

Master your card

Master Your Card is a free public education initiative created by MasterCard that helps consumers, small business groups and governments get more from their money by using prepaid, debit and credit cards to their advantage. From assisting consumer and social advocacy groups to increase financial inclusion and financial literacy; to helping small business associations teach members how to negotiate the best terms for processing electronic payments, to providing information and technical assistance to governments transitioning to cost-effective electronic payments and disbursements, Master Your Card provides educational tools, case studies, practical advice and technical assistance.

Recent accomplishments include a new initiative called Oportunidad to bring financial education to Latino consumers who are largely unbanked/underbanked and to Latino small business owners, in both English and Spanish; a fraud detection toolkit designed to train law enforcement officers to detect and track criminals, often in collaboration with state's attorney generals, and a partnership with the Association for Enterprise Opportunity to make sure America's underserved entrepreneurs have access to electronic payments.
