First Union Corp. said it has expanded marketing of its secured MasterCard, making credit more available to those who wish to reestablish or access it for the first time.

The card, secured by a deposit, was introduced in North Carolina and Florida last year. The market was expanded to include customers in Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia.

Renaissance Bankcard Services, Portland, Ore., has been retained by First Union for servicing the secured credit card portfolio.
