India – West Bengal: Sima Lohar, 20, portrayed  in a friend's house at Kathalguri Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. Given the prolonged closure of the tea estate until 2013, Lohar went to work as a domestic worker for almost three years in the cities of Chandigarh and Delhi. Duped and repeatedly raped by her agent who stole all her money, Lohar managed to come back to Kathalguri with the help of her family. She is now working for a local NGO which provides assistance to victims of trafficking.
