The Business

Accordion Content

বাতিঘর  sells energy bulbs at retail after buying them from manufacturers at wholesale. Being one of the main distributors and retailers of energy bulbs in Nilphamari, বাতিঘর  sells to practically every consumer in that region. With the exception of a very small number of consumers who pay off their credit purchases within one to seven days, all transactions are made in cash. The business buys energy bulbs in bulk from the factories directly then sells them from the shop/warehouse.

The business is planning to utilise this fund by buying energy bulbs in bulk from a manufacturer who is offering them to buy at a discounted price. This is a seasonal offer which is why the business needs some funds. With enough funds, the  business will be able to acquire bulbs in bulk and keep a good margin on it.    

Shop/warehouse address: Ramnagar, Post: Chayan Nagar Sadar, Nilphamari. 

FAQ:
💡 Is the business Shariah-compliant?

  • The business model (selling energy bulbs as a distributor and retailer) 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.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • 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.
  • Inflation and macroeconomic issues: Prices of materials are going up worldwide and coupled with the devaluation of taka, this is making products costlier. The significant price hike of the raw materials of making energy bulbs like plastics and other raw materials can affect the business badly.
    • বাতিঘর ’s strategy: The business will be buying energy bulbs in bulk from the manufacturing company directly which will allow them to avail bulbs at a discounted wholesale price. This will help the business to keep a good margin over the sales.
  • Availability of the special discount in time: The special discount offers normally opens for a brief period. Thus, there’s a chance that the business might miss that window. This will result in getting lower margins on the products that will end up hurting the overall margin of the business.
    • বাতিঘর ’s strategy: The business has confirmed that the offer is still going on and they will be able to avail the discount if the business can place order of the product within the next 10 days. 

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.

==============

Please note that the business may be given an incentive in the form of a discount on early repayment, which can only come in effect if the investors agree.

Following example is an illustration:
If the business repays within 4 months, the markup profit can be 7% (instead of 8%). This benefits both parties – the business has to pay back less and investors get their money back faster at a higher annual rate of return (e.g. 7% in 4 months means 21% per annum)

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

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

This is a necessary risk to ensure Shariah compliance of the transaction.

বাতিঘর   will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. A personal guarantee security cheque will also be kept from the business owner. Additionally, there will be a guarantor signing the in the contract.
