Ending the Progression of Poverty

(05/11/2016) Our very own Azim Saju, Vice President and General Counsel for HDG Hotels was featured in an article for Home Business Magazine. He had the opportunity to share his thoughts on how we can change the cycle of poverty and how the franchise business model changed his family’s life for the good. Azim believes that the franchise business model is a way of living to your fullest potential. As you read in the article, it holds true that because of the Saju's perseverance, risk taking, hard work, and life lessons, Azim and his brother Navroz Saju, President and CEO of HDG Hotels would not be the leaders and business owners they are today. In the article Azim explains that it is the job of both the employers and the government to reduce poverty; however, there needs to be a balance of the two. If the employee has the opportunity to advance, the assistance programs must be willing to encourage the advancement instead of feeding contentment. Azim is always proactive in finding new solutions to end the battle of poverty.   If you would like to read the article or his full statement, CLICK HERE!
