Making it in a megacity takes dedication, passion and skill – and with technology playing an ever greater role in the evolution of our world, Mastercard is committed to introducing smart, simple and secure digital payment solutions that will help make life easier. We take a look at two examples of megacities, Lagos in Nigeria and Karachi in Pakistan – they may be continents apart, but both share the same ambition for success. Here SME’s are driving the economy while cash is hampering progress. The introduction of Masterpass QR, a digital payments solution that turns a mobile phone into a smart and secure mobile wallet, is seen as a game changer for both cities. This solution will help entrepreneurs grow their business and change their future, which will in turn continue to help stabilize the economy of these emerging markets for future generations to come.
