I would suggest you not go that route......Purchase .11 Gauge strings and tune down a 1/2 step.....

Have her play every day for 1/2 hour for about 5 days.....Her fingers will be sore with possible string indentations.

REST ONE DAY COMPLETELY.......come back and play and and you will be surprised how the body has formed a thick skin callous in order to adjust to the newfound "threat" of Guitar strings......

Our bodies do adapt amazingly to the punishment.....

Just like working out, running etc, she will be fine.

In a few more days that pain will be history and she should be able to play fairly pain free for 1/2 hour to an hour......

DON'T GET A CHEAP HIGH ACTION GUITAR FOR HER.......

Hope this helps
