Global payments provider Mastercard has signed a memorandum of understanding which aims to contribute to financial inclusion.

The deal has been inked with Angaza, a leader in last-mile distribution technology. The two companies will work together to roll out an efficient digital payment solution to underbanked communities.

The goal will be to increase access to affordable necessities – such as water pumps and solar home systems – in emerging markets by leveraging micropayments.
