The Impact Report shows the effect Visa Foundation has had in partnering with grantees and investees that support over four million SMBs in 60 countries, more than one million jobs and more than $2 billion of capital invested in local communities around the world, reinforcing its goal to uplift everyone, everywhere through the power of economic mobility.
