Master Your Card (MYC) was a proud sponsor of the Seventh Annual Financial Education Week, hosted by the Consulate General of México in New York.

Through a variety of workshops, conferences, discussions and activities, the event aimed to provide constituents living in the tri-state area with necessary tools and resources to better manage their personal finances, including areas like investment, savings and entrepreneurship.

The events had more than 100 attendees, including representatives from México’s government, Latin-American counsels, local community leaders and the general public.

This year’s event also commemorated the fifth anniversary of the Financial Advisory Window, a program led by the General Consulate of Mexico in New York in collaboration with community partners, including the Qualitas of Life Foundation.

On April 4, Mastercard’s Mercedes Garcia led a workshop with Financial Education Week participants on the importance of electronic payment technology and how to make it work for them.
