A 24-year-old lady has set tongues wagging with a new revelation about how she survived when she had no money.

A former prostitute has narrated a story of how she had to survive by sleeping with men for over a year.

According to the lady, since she had nothing to live on, she had to sleep with about 600 different men in a year.

In a report sighted on Celebritiesbuzz.com.gh, the lady narrated the ordeals she had to go through as a poor girl.

In the report, Beatrice (not her real name) disclosed what led to the decision of becoming a prostitute.

She noted that after getting dumped by her boyfriend and having a low-paying job, she had no option than to go into sleeping with men for money.

She recalled how her friends spread negative rumors about her leading to her boyfriend quitting their relationship.

The lady who is a student at a vocational institute in the country went on to reveal that it was the day that she went to a nightclub that she began the prostitution job.

According to her, the salary at her pub job was GHC150 but on the night when she went to the nightclub, the man who took her to his hotel room paid GHC200 the next day.

“They were paying me GH¢150 a month and you work late hours. But if you go out to hustle in the night, you can get that kind of money within a day or two,” she stated.

She continued her confession saying “About 600 men slept with me from last year to this year.”

But Beatrice who now seems to be a changed person, said that she later discovered that prostitution is not as lucrative as she thought.

She noted that she is tired of warming the beds of different men each night as she is ready to settle down with a man.
