A 38-year-old woman from Volta Region whose identity was not revealed shared her story of having a husband, but she is still in prostitution.
According to the woman, her grandfather who was a fetish priest at Volta region, slept with her at the age of four when she was staying with her Auntie.
Her grandfather died when she got 11 years old. At that time, she wanted to tell her parents about what the man did to her, but she did not get the courage to inform them. But after his death, any man the woman greets has to sleep with her.
When she was 12 years, she started going to clubs with her friends and he slept with men. That was when she started prostitution, she usually stands at StandChart opposite Madina market. She said a lot of ladies who are into prostitution envy themselves a lot.
The woman met a guy who was interested in her when she was 20 years old, but she did not love him because of the kind of work she was doing. She can not be with one man but she got pregnant. She said whenever she is going out for prostitution, she prays to God to protect and help her to get a good person.
