Vincent, her father, paid money to an agent for Jordan visa to work in a fishing boat there. He worked for 1.5 years in Jordan but was not paid any salary. The work was so demanding, that he fell down and got a fracture in his spine. He was sent back to India without any of the promised salary. Vincent is not able to work any longer. He earns a little money doing odd jobs as coolie, that does not strain his body much.
