Inclusion through action


our goal

We are building a more connected world where everyone has equal access to a better life. Together we can achieve inclusion through action.

Empowering people to reach their full potential

Mastercard serves as a force for good to ensure people, communities, businesses and the planet can thrive. Together, we must address systemic issues of inequality in the financial system and create solutions that have a positive impact on our climate.

Preserving the planet for future generations

Sustainability is embedded in everything we do at Mastercard – who we are as a company, how we drive our business forward and how we support the communities and environment around us.

Fostering prosperity around the world

With more than a decade of experience as a leader in financial inclusion, Mastercard is helping one billion people and 50 million small businesses – with a focus on 25 million women entrepreneurs – to help grow their businesses.


In partnership with diverse Youtube creators we've highlighted our programs that support people, planet, and prosperity for all.

our commitment 

1 billion individuals

Five years ago, Mastercard committed to bring 500 million excluded individuals into the digital economy. Now we are doubling down on our original commitment, taking everything we’ve learned so far and reaching to include another 500 million people by 2025, for a total of 1 billion individuals. Alongside that, we’re committing to help 50 million small and micro merchants, with a direct focus on providing 25 million women entrepreneurs with solutions that can help them grow their businesses.
