4 A brothel, a house where men can visit prostitutes, is a common form of sex trafficking in Guatemala. Women need money and think that a brothel could bring that to them. However in many of the stories the little money that they make can end up going right back into the brothel. Sometimes the owner or boss might make them pay for room and board which would just take the money that they made right out of their hands. (dictionary)  NP

11 With 15 siblings this 14 year old girl thought she was going to visit her grandpa but ended up in Guatemala City and trapped in sex slavery. Her fear of starvation and being along if she left is ultimately why she had to put up with sex slavery at her age. However this girl was saved and taken to a girls’ shelter. Although her name is not revealed because of what she went through this story is important because for most of us this girls is only a year or two younger. (nnews2) NP

12 An abandoned child at the age of six in Guatemala she lived on the streets until she was nine and a half and met a man who took her in. This man owned a night club and this is how this young girl started in the sex business. She also worked in a brothel which raised her no money as her profits would just be used to cover her expenses for her room and board. (unicef2) NP

13 With her mom demanding that she brings money home she saw gaining money through sex was how she was going to earn income. When Alba was working at a bar with a girlfriend she was the only underage girl in the bar and was very popular which was another reason that she joined the industry. 160 dollars is not enough to support Alba’s family so again in Guatemala another younger girl has turned to a brothel as a way of income when really it is not going to help her economically because she must pay for her room and board. Guatemala’s sexual exploitation of young girls is not a major crime in Guatemala and the highest penalty for corruption of minors is a measely 400 dollar fine. (inews) NP

14 Of the 79 brothels in Tecun Uman, Guatemala Maria del Refugio Rosas is a Roman Catholic nun who has information from prostitutes that come to her. She claims that she know at least 15 women in prostitution that have sold their babies for financial help. This shows the state of need that these women are in. She also says that some women who work in bars were not able to leave from working because the owners keep their passports or other documents. Gloria Sanchez came to Guatemala in search of a job from Nicaragua. She was promised a position as a maid. Although she had the position for a little bit her life was dictated by her boss who turned her into a bar maid which led to her being sold into a brothel. When she escaped one night she realized that she didn’t know any other work which shows that these women in these brothels become dependent on their owners. (poundp) NP

15 Human trafficking is when people bought, kidnapped, transported, or forced to do labor. Forms of human trafficking include forced labor, child soldiery, and sex slavery Sex slavery is often for women to make money by selling themselves to men for sex. (polaris)  NP

16 Sex trafficking is not only happens in Guatemala but it is also a source. Guatemalans can be trafficked into countries such as the United States or Mexico. Often times they are promised a better life. Guatemala is also a destination for people to be trafficked coming from other countries. Countries such as El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua are involved with Guatemala because it is thought that people from these countries have immigrated from their countries and end up becoming trafficked in Guatemala.
