BENEFIT, the Kingdom’s innovator and leading company in Fintech and electronic financial transactions service, officially kicks off its annual FinTech Internship Program “Masar” in its second edition, in collaboration with the Supreme Council for Women (SCW). The initiative seeks to empower Bahraini university students by providing them with a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience and skills in the financial technology sector.

Masar is a summer internship program designed to strengthen the skills and competencies of Bahraini youth while also familiarizing them with the working environment within the FinTech sector. Participants will have the opportunity to discover numerous aspects of the financial sector, expand their innovative thinking, and contribute to the development of Bahrain’s digital economy.

Mr. Salah Al Awadhi, Head of Human Resources & Administration, commented, “We are eager to reintroduce the Masar programme this year. It is an excellent opportunity for Bahraini students to obtain practical experience in the financial space and gain exposure to the captivating realm of FinTech. By placing emphasis on Women in FinTech, we hope to foster inclusion and diversity in the industry as a whole, while ensuring equal opportunities for exceptional individuals to flourish. We would like to express gratitude to the Supreme Council for Women (SCW) for their invaluable collaboration and support in making this initiative a reality.”
