What do you want to change? Why?
How do you want to change it?
MAMMU is a social business fashion company providing young Latvian mothers in need
with flexible working time. Mothers who have to combine childcare and earning money.
Since many mothers cant find a kindergarden place for there children it is nearly
impossible earning money and caring for the children at the same time. The social benefit
payed to those mothers is so low that they live way below the basket minimum (the
minimum that you need per month so that you can survive).
MAMMU trains those mothers in how to produce the MAMMU fashion products and
how to set up there own micro production company.
MAMMU is run according to the 7 principles of Grameen Social Business
When the mothers are trained we provide them with materials so that they can
produce the MAMMU products at home. When the products are finished we buy
them of them .
