No it is not the right way to invest, trust are formed to hold the individual's property subject to certain duties to use and protect it for the benefit of others.You may form partnership firm.

Dear Sir / Madam,

There is a good saying in English : "Before borrowing money from a friend, decide which you need most". Although there is another saying in English : "The more, the merrier"; it doesn't necessarily work well in business, simply because decision making gets "crippled". And in any business, you earn your share of income / profit as your benefit provided the business is successful. In my opinion, forming a limited Company by engaging a local Chartered Accountant is a better option.
