MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth
The mission of the MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth is to empower people through inclusive economies. To accomplish this, the Center seeks to fill a critical need – invest in innovative and practical programs and connect the experience and knowhow of four key stakeholders: the development community, governments, academia, and business.

The Center is working to create and translate research into tangible and actionable insights, partnering to reach micro-entrepreneurs with the tools and support necessary to join the formal financial economy, and expanding understanding into the drivers and barriers of inclusion.
