Sultana, aged 16, embellishes a saree in her home in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India on 23 November 2013. Sultana was enticed by a trafficker on the pretext of marriage and was raped repeatedly as he filmed her, using the film to blackmail her as he sold her to another trafficker for INR50000 (USD800). Guria has since put almost all of her traffickers into jail, and has provided her with a grant for livelihood support, which she used to start her saree embellishment business.
