We believe in partnership, not sponsorship

A ONE-TIME DONATION OF $1,000 OPENS A NEW MERCADO FRESCO STORE FOR ONE OF 152 WOMEN ON OUR WAITING LIST.

By making this gift and agreeing to invest in a store operator, we will connect you to a specific woman who will be starting the training process. You can donate $1,000 at once or commit to donating the total over 10 months.

We don’t call this a sponsorship program because for us, that word connotes dependence. All along we have been about building a sustainable business model. Ourstores pay for themselves within 8 months. Every time you donate to Supply Hope, your money goes directly to providing opportunity for more women.

So invest in one woman or invest in ten! We can’t wait to connect you.

How It Works

Choose a Woman to Partner With

We have vetted every candidate you see listed above. These women have been approved to start the trianing process, but will not be able to open a store unless you come alongside them, providing the one-time donation to change their lives forever. You can donate $1,000 to start a store for a woman today, or start a 10 month donation commitment.

Expect Transparency

In the US, 90% of startups fail. We have been able to maintainthat 45% of our stores succeed and are constantly working to increase that percentage. Breaking the cycle of poverty is about a lot more than just making more money. We’ve had women forced to give up their stores because their husbands are angry that they make more money than them. We’ve had stores close because (insert other reason here). As an investor, you have an opportunity to encourage these women when they face adversity…and that could truly make all the difference. When a store closes, we are able to reallocate 75% of the initial investment into the opening of a new store. If your store closes, we will give you a new operator to partner with.
