Co-signers ares equally liable for the loan, "jointly and severally," which means either of the signers can pay all of the debt, as long as someone pays it. If the lender doesn't want to refinance in just the daughters name (which they won't do if the daughter's credit is not good enough), then probably the mother's only option will be to pay off the loan.
