Says Captain Percy M Master, WZCC President – India Region, who will drive the project in India, “With this Financing Initiative we are fulfilling a long time need to encourage the youth of our community to venture into business. Our request to Youth is to come forward with a good Business Plan. We will Guide you and Mentor you to taking the first steps to start your own  business. We are confident that this is a small beginning of something big. Please don’t miss this opportunity. We have great confidence in the future of our youth and in the glory of our community. May Ahura Mazda bless our youth and propel them to greater heights to become the stars of our Community”.

Says Mr. Dinshaw Tamboly, Chairman WZOTF, the enabling organization for this project,                  “WZO Trust Funds, have over the years encouraged, motivated and supported community members to be self-employed. Between 1995 to end March 2017 we have extended interest-free financial support up to Rs. 5,00,000/- to 1,038 individuals at 114 locations in India towards being self-employed in disciplines of their choice. The new initiative of WZCC and WZOTF working together in tandem towards a common goal promises to give a further boost to the Zoroastrian spirit of entrepreneurship lying latent in the minds of  many in our community.”
