Businesswomen aim to help single mothers in the Hispanic community through Waukesha-based company
WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- What started with a cup of coffee and an idea, transformed into a business that serves single mothers in Waukesha.
Before Blanca Cano and Geovanna Salazar, owners of G&B Embroidery based in Waukesha, started their business, they found it difficult to balance work life with their family.
They knew in the Hispanic community, moms are often running the households.
They believed if they could get some support from their employer, the employees would come to work energized.
"I went through what many of them went through, in particular I had a job where I needed a permission slip to leave work and it was very difficult to get one," said Salazar.
Because of the pandemic, Cano and Salazar have helped a total of three women. They provide the opportunity to leave work whenever they need to, for any issues involving their kids.
These entrepreneurs are looking for a much larger location to not only expand their business, but to expand their capacity to welcome and help more women achieve their goals by providing work and motivation.
