Most that start out with running, start with a fast walk, then on to a jog, then a run...for those that can get to the jogging part straight away, as in they are fit enough to do so, the way they work it is to jog for as long as comfortable, then walk to recover a little and then jog again, and continue in that way.
Over time, they end up walking less and jogging more as they get fitter with each day.

Does she like running? Or does she just want to lose weight? Because I think there are much better ways of losing weight, getting into shape, looking good and are a lot more fun.

If she's really interested in running then she needs to run the couch to 5k program, also known as C25K. It's usually used as an audio file you listen to while you run. It tells you when to run and when to walk, using progressively more running to take someone who's never run at all and take them to the point where they can run a 5k.
But that's only if she's really interested in running. If she isn't, then there are lots of other, less destructive ways to burn calories and lose weight. Sprints and shorter intervals are much better for not burning up what little muscle she actually has.

IMHO, if the goal is to lose weight, there are far better ways than running. I don't recommend that overweight/obese people do any running or jumping to start with. The extra weight alone is already stressing the joints, running adds 400lbs of pressure on the knees per 100 pound of body weight. For a 250 lb person, that is, about 1000lbs of pressure on the knee each step, when running. I am not saying running is bad, just not an advocate for ow/obese people. I start my folks on body weight exercises and a radical kitchen lifestyle change.
Now, if her goal is to compete in a race ... Do what Soldier suggests, just know that it will stress the joints.

I am currently trying to get back in cardio shape and decided to keep it simple. 30 min a day 4 days a week. Just jog at a nice slow pace to you are too winded to keep going the walk till you catch your breath then repeat. As soon as you can jog 30 min non-stop then you can worry about the next part (increasing pace or total time running). Don't over complicate it just do something... This is what I used to get a 35 min 5 mile about 4 years ago.
