Mastercard says it is expanding its worldwide commitment to financial inclusion by pledging to bring a total of 1 billion people and 50 million micro- and small businesses into the digital economy by 2025.

The impact of COVID-19 has made it even more pressing to support inclusive growth in Asia-Pacific, which is home to 60 percent of the world's population.  As part of the effort, there will be a direct focus on providing 25 million female entrepreneurs with solutions that can help them grow their businesses.
