Cashless Leader and Card Industry Breakthrough awards for maib from Mastercard


During the "Mastercard Day 2022" event, held this year in Warsaw, Poland, the maib team was awarded with two important distinctions, being recognized as the Cashless Leader in the Republic of Moldova and the Card Industry Breakthrough. 


Aliona Stratan, First Deputy Chairwoman of the Management Board of maib, said:


"It becomes part of maib's DNA to surprise our customers with our innovative products, to support the development of the cashless economy in our country and to implement projects aligned with international standards.  We are a pillar of support for our customers and provide them with all the necessary resources to strengthen their business and growth potential. For our customers we will continue to innovate with even more passion. I would like to thank Mastercard for the partnership, the constant support, the transparency promoted and the trust invested. My special thanks go to the maib team for their dedication and continuous effort to offer the best to our dear customers".


Irina Untilă, Director of the Mastercard office in Moldova, said:


"We are incredibly appreciative of partners who share our global vision for cashless. For several years already together with maib, we have been launching innovative payment products and solutions that turn cashless payments into a daily habit, creating new opportunities for Moldovans. At the same time maib impresses us with the drive to seek new opportunities for development. This year, the bank has demonstrated phenomenal results in terms of growth momentum across almost all segments and categories. This relates both to the development of bank cards as a universal and especially premium product, and to the expansion of the cashless payment acquiring network. The Cashless Leader and Industry Breakthrough awards are a natural outcome and well-deserved appreciation for the work of the maib team."

The Mastercard Day event is held annually, bringing together commercial bank representatives, speakers, international banking experts, and development partners to discuss modern regional and international trends in the face of technological transformation. Last year, in the context of Mastercard Day 2021, maib won the "Leader in card performance 2021" award for developing modern, secure and easy-to-use payment solutions.
