Mastercard has announced the launch of its SME dining series to support small and medium businesses in Lagos and Abuja.
The SME Dining Series seeks to support and promote SMEs in Nigeria. This is in response to the changing consumer behaviour, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The initiative calls on people who have an appreciation of local good food, to join Mastercard in supporting small businesses, local restaurants and community livelihoods in Abuja and Lagos.
