Sex workers in the state of Minas Gerais, which includes the World Cup host city of Belo Horizonte, have struck a deal with a bank
Prostitutes in a World Cup host city in Brazil will take payment by debit or credit card.
They struck a deal with a bank and will be given chip and PIN machines.
The women in Belo Horizonte, 270 miles from Rio, have adopted the slogan, “Enjoy now, pay later”. Cida Vieira, of prostitute’s group Aprosmig, said: “Clients who want to extend their programme but don’t have any cash can stay with a girl for longer without any interruption.”
Their association said card payments would be better for clients’ security and bank statements would not specify the “activity”. The women are also taking English lessons for next year’s competition.
