To earn a living, Lass P. sells dry fish in the busy local market and typically generates an income US$ 3 each day to meet her family’s daily living expenses. She also buys fresh fish and turns them into dried fish and sells them retail to her regular customers who come to buy things in the market. Her husband earns money by providing a taxi service.
