What's the economic return like for indie films?

A good friend of a friend completed production of an independent film earlier this year. They've submitted it to festivals and are just waiting to hear back now. Does anyone have some stats on how much revenue a typical independently-produced film can hope to make in the US and how much the most popular ones make? How do indie filmmakers actually make money?

Apparently, she has worked so hard on it for next to no income - working a part-time job on the side. I was just curious about how many people put themselves through this and what they can expect at the end of it.
