Lucy is 37 years old and lives in Paynesville. She's married and her husband is an office worker; they have nine children, six of whom live at home and attend school.
Lucy has had a business cooking and selling fish for five years. She was taught how to run the business by her sister-in-law. Her main challenge is the high cost of raw fish. She is happy when she sells fish for it enables her to help her husband and pay for the children's school fees.
