Singapore online startup helps single mothers find work

Juggling full-time work and children is difficult for many single mothers.

Singapore-based social enterprise Design Up is trying to change that by giving them the option of working from home.

It has trained nearly 40 single mothers to make jewellery that it helps sell online. However, the business has never made a profit.

The BBC's Ashleigh Nghiem takes a look at the challenges of running such a startup.
