Under this project, the youth would be given loans in three categories. Ranging from Rs10,000 to Rs 100,000 interest-free loans will be provided in a category, while upto Rs500,000 loans will be given on lenient terms and conditions in the other category.
Under the program, a vast array of projects and initiatives would be taken in education, skill training, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement for country’s youth.
