The Business

Accordion Content

Written by the Azlanth

Back in 2014, Azlanth established and originally operated as a retail shop in Banani. Since 2019, it has transformed into an Importer and Distributor of essential baby Care products and selling in whole Dhaka City and through wholesaler and E-commerce site. As the demographic landscape in Bangladesh has drastically changed, there is a huge demand for imported baby care commodity items among them in our country. The Business addresses the escalating demand for imported baby commodities and sourcing these items from Malaysia. 

Yet, the current economic upsurge in inflation has compelled the Business to seek financial recourse through biniyog.io, owing to the necessity of increased capital for procurement, driven by the challenge of diminished import capabilities due to the foreign currency exchange dynamics. Furthermore, the unforeseen intricacies of Letter of Credit margins have presented a fresh set of complexities. Nevertheless, Azlanth’s finesse in maintaining profit margins assures not only the sustainability of operations but also punctual compliance with their financial obligations.

Address : House 47 (Ground Floor), Road 9/B, Sector 5, Uttara,

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Foreign Currency Exchange Rate: Uncertain Fluctuation of the dollar rate can increase the price and cost of imported products.This may result in notable drop in sales and profit margin. 

AZLANTH’s Strategy: The business normally stores the bulk products in their warehouse. The business has good connections with the suppliers allowing the business to achieve information advantage. 

  • Inflation and macroeconomic issues: The current devaluation of Bangladeshi Taka is a great matter of concerns for any kind of business. Moreover, the purchasing power of customers plays a major role in the industry that AZLANTH is operating in. Any uncertain situations can result in significant downward hurtle in sales.  

AZLANTH’s Strategy: The business is looking for funds to purchase only the most demanding product (baby diaper). Moreover, the business has an established sales channel that enables them to sell the products smoothly. 

  • High competitiveness in the market: The availability of information makes the market very competitive. Moreover, threats of new entrants in the market have also increased. So, there is always a possibility that the business may lose its market shares. This will ultimately result in a significant drop in sales. 

AZLANTH’s Strategy: The Business has established relationships with several customers (retailers) all over Dhaka. Moreover, the business already has a good level of demand for its products among its current customers.  The business has also established a retail distribution channel in Uttara.

  • 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 considering their cash flow.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. AZLANTH would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since AZLANTH  will choose the items before biniyog.io buys them.

AZLANTH will share a security cheque. Moreover, a guarantor will be introduced in the contract to add an extra layer of security for the investors.
