The MasterCard Foundation Symposium on Financial Inclusion promotes the idea that banks and other financial service providers in developing countries should focus on the needs and expectations of people living in poverty.

We believe that universal access to finance, embedded in the Sustainable Development Goals, can be achieved only if economically disadvantaged people have access to safe, affordable and convenient financial products and services. That can occur only if financial service providers truly understand the complex financial lives of poor people and design and deliver products that respond to them.

The 2016 Symposium has now ended, but we look forward to continuing this important conversation with the global financial inclusion community.
