The Story



Intro

For my entire life, I’ve wanted to open my own specialty retail store, and now I finally have my chance. But to do it, I need funding to rent space and stock my inventory -- and for all that, I need your support. 



The Concept

I’ve always had a knack for tastemaking -- for knowing exactly what the public wants before it knows that it wants it. That’s why I’ve long had the idea for a retail store that fuses the unique and interesting fashions of India and that of lumberjacks.


My store’s name? Dye & Cotton.



My Request

My business partners and I have finally found a good location for the store as well as a manufacturing pipeline that should allow us to turn specialty, artisan fabrics into wearable works of art.


Unfortunately, if we want to actually get Dye & Cotton off the ground, it’s going to take a pretty significant investment. While we’ve managed to secure some of this, the rest will take some doing.


To get the funding I need, I’m asking the help of my friends, family, and community. Of course, I’m not asking you for a donation; I’m asking for a loan.



With your help, I’m looking to rent some retail space in a popular shopping development in the most fashionable corner of town.


In addition to that, I’m also projecting that I’ll need at least a $20,000 to secure the clothing manufacturers that my business associates and I have found, as well as transport our goods to the store.


I really think this is a good opportunity for me to kickstart my career as an artisan retailer, and with your help, I just might be able to make things happen.
