Debt bondage/bonded labour

Debt bondage occurs when a person is forced to work to pay off a debt. They are tricked into working for little or no pay, with no control over their debt.

Most or all of the money they earn goes to pay off their loan. The value of their work invariably becomes greater than the original sum of money borrowed.

 People bonded by debt face coercion, violence and intimidation if they try to leave.
