Visa believes the most important financial tool is not a product – it is knowledge. That is why for over a decade Visa has been developing financial literacy programs that teach individuals how to spend, save and budget responsibly. Supporting financial literacy is good for our business and the right thing to do.
Visa is committed to reaching 20 million people worldwide with financial literacy information by May 1, 2013. To learn more about Visa’s commitment to financial literacy, explore our media kit.
