Central America: Schools taking their businesses to the next level

Colegio Parroquial Hermano Pedro Betancourt is the school enterprise set up by 14 motivated students from Colegio Hermano Pedro Betancourt in Managua, Nicaragua. The school is a member of our Enterprising Schools Network, Central America.
