 One of my goals in life has been to help provide opportunities for millions of people who do not have access to the kinds of financial products and services that many of us take for granted. That’s why Meta’s mission is to promote financial inclusion for everyone. Meta is committed to supporting financial literacy and products that help move people toward financial freedom. The prepaid industry provides a critical platform for us to accomplish that, and I am honored to be part of it.
