We are two Single Mothers who met by chance three years ago.. and through our struggles never lost touch with each other. With such a lot in common we have maintained our friendship while struggling to support our children. Both have supported others around us to help grow their businesses, build their own wellbeing, yet we find ourselves not getting the same in return. It has come to a breaking point where we have decided to focus on our own dream. To start a business that will not only begin to help us grow personally, rebuilding ourselves emotionally but assist us to support our children through their schooling and young lives. Unfortunately our families are far away which limits our support system and the fathers of our children do not financially support us to enable an form of security. Mercy has recently lost both her parents within a space of 4 months leaving her without guardians to take care of her baby while she works full day and the father of my child is continuously threatening to take my boy away from me because I am financially limited, yet at the same time he wont take responsibility to financially contribute towards raising my son. Regardless we work extremely hard every day for others who do not value us and take advantage of our situation. I lost my permanent job in December 2018 due to my manager abusing me and his position. Although I followed the right channels to report the situation , I was the one to come out at the end in a bad way. My now ex boyfriend stole my previous business idea , my business name and logo and started his own business. While starting this venture on my creativity , inputs and support. He financially drained me for a full year while setting up this business and now that he is becoming a success and earning a great deal of money he has not supported me once leaving me to watch him succeed off of my Ideas yet refuses to allow me any involvement in the business.
We have come to a cross road where we refuse to be victims and hurt any longer, we need to believe in ourselves to begin our own journey of success. We are two head strong determined, brilliantly minded woman who just need a chance, a break, an angel and a helping hand. I have a wonderful business idea but with not funding and no surety I am limited to getting started. We need your helping hand.. We need your thoughts and prayers and if you can a small contribution to push us in the right direction,
Our warmest regards
Claire & Mercy
