Currency of Progress Expands to Brazil

When Currency of Progress launched in the United States in 2009, we told the story of a Brazilian father – and passionate soccer fan – who could finally take his son to a match thanks to the safety and speed of ticketless entry at the stadium, powered by Visa digital currency. 

Today, Visa is launching a Currency of Progress website just for Brazil, providing Visa with a robust platform for communicating the benefits of digital currency to key local influencers. Brazil is the latest of six priority countries where we’re activating local sites, including India, Japan, Mexico, and Russia, with China planned for the end of the calendar year. We’ve also redesigned the Currency of Progress global website and developed supporting materials that tell the breadth of Visa’s story – from our impact on economies to the unique value of our global network, VisaNet.

We believe that when influential stakeholders see these stories – spanning the globe from India to Brazil to the United States – they will develop a deeper understanding of the important and positive effects Visa has on individuals, businesses and governments.

As stakeholders visit the site and learn more about Visa’s Currency of Progress, they will be able to understand the ways Visa is:

  • Supporting business by showing how Visa technology and payment products help merchants manage their cash flow, improve their bottom line and grow their business.  
  • Empowering people by giving individuals fast, convenient, reliable and secure access to their money, empowering them with the tools they need to live their lives.
  • Growing economies by facilitating the shift to electronic payments from cash and checks thereby delivering tangible benefits to economies.
  • Partnering with government to improve efficiencies and empower their citizens — from the distribution of benefits in digital currency to the procurement of vital goods and services electronically.
