proftpd user privaleges

I have set up a ftp server with proftpd on my linux box. I have it working well. I have setup 3 main users, the anonymous suer which i have the home dir as /var/ftp, a web user which i have the home set too /var/www and a user called alim with the home at /home/alim. I added the following code to my proftpd.conf file:

<Directory />
                <Limit WRITE>
I have put this code in there so i can have read/write access with my web and alim users. after i restart my proftpd server i am able to create/ edit directories with the user called alim but with the user called web. The user called web is the one I need to have the read write priveleges. Could someone please help me configure the web user to have these priveleges.

Also i have used these commands to lock the ftp user to the /var/ftp directory but now I want other users to be able to have this dir as there home. How can I do it?

chown -R ftp.ftp /home/ftp &&
chmod 750 /home/ftp
thanks for all the help!! i really appreciate it!!
