About Me

My name is Alassane Diop. I am an artist who dies cloths and sells them. I learned this trade from my mother. From a very young age this trade fascinated me, I was always very moved to watch her put so many colors on a single cloth. I graduated high school though could not continue my education, because my aging parents could not afford it. Since then, I chose a career in dying cloths, which allows me to make a living and take care of my parents. I make and die bed sheets, blankets, table cloths, shirts, and pants. I sell these products to make a living.

My Business

I've been working with cloth-dying (Batik) for over 10 years. This is a traditional manual craft that consists of putting different colors on a white cloth and then tailoring the cloth to make dresses, pants, bed sheets or table cloths. I also teach batik dying classes to people who are interested.

Loan Proposal

The loan that I would like to have will be used to produce traditional hand-dyed batik clothing. This is my trade, in which I have over ten years of experience. I would like to replace worn-out tools and equipment, and avoid ruptures of inventory - often clients come to buy clothing from me and find that I am out of stock.
