What are the different challenges for a single mother in life?

I find this question really interesting.in life we all do face challenges but when it comes to a single parent most especially the mother I think it wouldn't be very easy if nobody would assist such person.

She need to Carter for the children provide food for them and also shelter and if such woman is not working definitely she can't be in such position to render her family needs.

In Africa most especially we do find such situation where we would see a single mother struggling to Carter for the even when the husband is no more.
