10 Instagram stores run by mothers to get to know and contribute

Being a woman and an entrepreneur, in many cases, is not an easy task. Being a woman, mother and entrepreneur, then, usually demands even more time, effort and work (physical and mental). This is because, even with an active support network, many mothers have to manage, at one time, the care of their children, the accomplishment of most of the domestic tasks and the demands of the business.

Entrepreneurship is the choice of several women, both by will and necessity, despite the latter being the reality of most Brazilian entrepreneurial mothers. This is because the labor market, although it has shown some advances, still excludes mothers, and the anguish of the end of maternity leave usually arises in many of them, which end up giving a new meaning to their priorities and needs in the postpartum period.

To top it off, in 2020 came the coronavirus pandemic, which still has no definite date to end. If the traditional economic sector has already been severely impacted, the small business sector has suffered even greater damage – and has also swelled, due to the many families that had their members laid off and needed a plan B. But it is not all bad news, and entrepreneurial mothers are there, reinventing itself and using social networks as a support and recognition tool.
