Human Trafficking Recruiter Earnings

in Transnational Crime

Recruitment agents who work for human trafficking groups in Northern Bangladesh earn various fees for finding girls.

If an agent finds a girl who is “certified as ‘fit'” and is determined to be good-looking enough to work as a prostitute in India, then the agent receives a payment of $1,456 to $1,821 (80,000 to 100,000 Indian Rupees).

If a trafficking agent finds someone to work as a domestic help or as a laborer, then the agent receives a payment of $273.
