My girlfriend lost her 5,000 pesos a month secretary job in Santiago a few months ago. Like many young adults in this country she cant find reemployment even at those low wages..and she has looked. I want to help her and was wondering if there are any self employment options here. I would be glad to invest say $5,000 (or more if it looks like she can make alittle money) to get her started in some sort of business. She wanted to start a salon but I told her that would be a quick loss of my investment as there a million of them already. She used to be an Avon cosmetics distributor here but somehow managed to LOSE $300 on that one. If she made could make say $300-500 a month working 20 hours a week that be great .. being totally dependent on me is not a good long term solution or good for her self respect. Her English is weak. Any suggestions on self employment or home-based type businesses here?
