Helena lives in the Paynesville area. She is 42 years old and has six children between the ages of 4 and 20 years who are in school and live at home. Helena stopped her education in the 6th grade. She is married and her husband is a social worker.
For the past five years, Helena has been running a shop where she sells electronic accessories, hangers, and other items. She started this business with money that she received from her husband.
