The Business

Accordion Content

Alian Shoes sells sports and leather shoes that are mostly export-oriented. As the export-oriented shoes are considered to be better in quality, there is a huge demand for them in our domestic market as well. The business purchases the shoes mostly from different wholesalers. The business is currently looking to purchase some of the most demanding products in bulk so that the profit margin can be made better. The business has some good connections with some manufacturers from where products can be purchased at a comparatively less price than the wholesalers.  

The business has an outlet at the Sena Shopping Complex at Nabinagar, Savar. Being situated in the single biggest shopping mall in the areas covering Chandra, Dhamrai, Nabinagar and adjacent areas, the business gets many customers.

FAQ:
💡 Is the business Shariah-compliant?

  • The business model (selling shoes) is Shariah-compliant
  • However, according to our Shariah Advisors, biniyog.io and the investors will NOT be liable if the day-to-day operations of the business are not fully Shariah-compliant.

    This is because investors will be going into a Murabaha (sale contract), not profit-sharing or partnership. Please find contract details in the “Contract” section below.

💡 Is there any investment risk involved?

Investments have risks by definition, especially if they are halal. Please find possible risk details for this campaign in the “Risk” section below.

Md Yeamul Haque Dipu has been in the footwear business since before 2019. He has spent a significant amount of time abroad where he had gone in search of livelihood. After coming back to Bangladesh, he started Alian Shoes.
The initial experience of the business owner was not good at all. His business suffered financially mainly because he did not have sufficient knowledge of the business. But he was able to turn back his business into a profitable one over time. The owner currently has a strong level of networking with some manufacturers and wholesalers. This allows him to keep track of the market trends, price fluctuations, supply-chain status of most demanding products etc. 

  • Standard revenue stream.
  • Multiple channels of revenue (e.g. both retail and wholesale wings)
  • Established sourcing and selling channels.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Not getting the expected volume of products: The business often sources the products from the manufacturer directly. Sometimes, the manufacturers tend to deliver less products than the business demanded. This happens due to sudden unavailability or surged demand of the products.     
    • Alian Shoes’ strategy: The business owner has an optimum level of networking with the manufacturers. Additionally, the business purchases from different sources to keep the supply flow stable. The business owner is also working on getting onboard with new suppliers and expanding his sourcing network.
  • Dependency on credit sales: The business often has to allow credit sales for some of its loyal customers who make wholesale purchases. If the payment collection cycle gets derailed due to any avoidable/ unavoidable situation, the overall financial condition of the business will be affected negatively.       
    • Alian Shoes’ strategy: The business operates both retail and wholesale wings. This allows the business to generate revenue from two separate sources. The business generates a significant half of the total sales from its retail sales through its offline store and its online page, any negative effect on the wholesale wing can be mitigated to a tolerable point. 
  • Inflation: An increase in the price of raw materials would have an effect on selling prices to local buyers, possibly resulting in a decrease in sales volume.
    • Alian Shoes’ strategy: The business is planning to make some bulk purchases with the funding. This step is expected to mitigate the price hike issue to a tolerable level.
  • Possibility of political turmoil following the upcoming election: Our assessment assumes that there will be some macroeconomic turmoil towards the end of 2023 before the general election. This may impact any business.

biniyog.io has done in-house analyses of the projected returns of the business and they are expected to be able to repay on time, if not hugely impacted by macroeconomic issues.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. The products will then be handed over to Alian Shoes within a very short time frame.

Alian Shoes would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since Alian Shoes themselves will be choosing the items before biniyog.io buys them.

Alian Shoes will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. Additionally, the business will be introducing a “guarantor” to the contract and a personal guarantee security cheque will be kept from the business owner.
