A netizen shared how she took a loan of about $5k to pay an “agent” of hers to bring her to Singapore to work as a KTV hostess.
Here is her story
“I am currently living in Ho Chi Minh, and I came to Singapore a few years ago for a short “work” trip to make some money before heading home.
I took a loan of about $5k and paid the agent, and the money included accommodations and etc for my time in Singapore.
After I reached Singapore, I had to start working to quickly raise the sum of money to repay the loan, as well as to pay for my living expenses.
The rest of the money, I saved up to bring back to Vietnam, for a better life.
At first i was very stressed because all I had at the back of my mind was the loan and wanting to pay off the loan as quickly as possible, so that the rest of the money that I took back was mine.
Working at a KTV is very tough, because I have to let the men touch me and I have to drink A LOT of alcohol each night.
But the only thing on my mind was money, and the money was very good.
On a good night, I can take back about $1k, if I provide extra services to the men, on top of the tips that they give us at the end of the KTV session.
I stayed in Singapore for about 2 months, and made a total of $40k, and after minusing the initial loan that I took to come to Singapore and all my other debts, I managed to bring back about $30k.
The money is too good to refuse, and I will be back soon.”
