Mercado Fresco, or “Fresh Market”, is the first micro-franchise developed by Supply Hope. Mercado Fresco has been piloted since 2012 and has now grown to just around 100 stores. Their goal is sustainable operations as they scale to 250 stores in Managua by 2018.
Beth is the founder and CEO of Supply Hope. She is a charismatic leader, innovative thinker, and a curious problem solver. After spending more than 25 years as an entrepreneur creating one of the top travel organizations in the country, Beth is using her franchise, direct sales, and marketing experience to make a difference in the lives of people in need in Nicaragua.
Beth holds a strong belief that providing opportunities for others to become self-reliant breaks the cycle of poverty. After seeing the effects of poverty on women and children in Latin America, she felt compelled to apply her business ownership and franchise experience to develop micro-franchising solutions through Supply Hope.
