Pakistan suffers from the same problem that’s occuring in India. As of 2016, 2.10 million Pakistanis were living as slaves. Poor families often approach those who are wealthy and beg them for a loan. The borrower is then forced to work low-paying jobs for hours on end. With high-interest rates tacked onto the loan, the debtor can keep the borrower enslaved for as long as they choose. In many cases, generations of families can be enslaved to work off the debt in the wealthy family’s brick kilns, factories, fields, and farms.
