Why does my girlfriend's stuff smell so strongly?

For the first time in long life experience, I have a girlfriend who is very stinky "down there". What to do?

She is clean and hygenic, and she says that it was always like this, not some new thing. Her womanly stuff has a VERY strong fishy smell, the stereotypical thing men complain about but that I have never come across before. She doesn't like the smell, so she rejects / avoids my face or fingers during sex if they are "dirty". I can live with it, but it isn't great, and the fact that she so dislikes it makes going down on her not as nice as I would like it to be.
Is this normal? Is there anything she can do to change it? Douche? Diet? Some sort of undiagnosed infection?
I live in a part of the world where it is really hard to find a sympathetic and knowledgeable gynecologist, so "go to a gynecologist" is not going to be very helpful! Thanks.
