Mastercard’s second annual Community Pass Customer Summit in Kampala, Uganda gathered more than 90 public and private sector partners, featured 20+ thought leaders dedicated to crafting sustainable solutions for digital and financial inclusion across Africa and beyond.
This year’s summit showcased over 10 cutting-edge technologies and financial institutions, each presenting their digital solutions designed to include underserved communities across the agriculture, health, micro-commerce, and education.
The event also featured interactive panel discussions focusing on the impact of digital technology in promoting service delivery and economic growth in remote areas.
