Visa officially launched the newly-incorporated Visa Foundation, which is embarking on an exciting new endeavor to empower financially underserved enterprises, improving the livelihoods and well-being of business owners, their households and communities.
We are thrilled to share that the Foundation’s first grantee is Women’s World Banking, supporting our work with $20M for the next five years to develop sustainable solutions for women entrepreneurs to build their enterprises and establish financial safety nets.
Visa’s support demonstrates its strong commitment to women’s financial inclusion. We look forward to working with the new Foundation and our implementing partners to show the world how empowering women with financial services gives them access to economic opportunity while driving business growth for the financial service providers that serve them.
