  • Investors will go into a Murabaha agreement (sale contract) with Interactive Cares for office products (office equipment, furniture, electronic equipment etc.)

  • biniyog.io will act as an agent for the investors and buy the products, take necessary ownership and risk of asset possession on their behalf, and then sell to Interactive Cares.

Shariah Compliance

Accordion Content

Investors appoint biniyog.io as an agent to deal on their behalf (Wakalah) and invest into the business through buy and sale of assets under an advanced buy-and-sell (Bai’ Murabaha) agreement.

biniyog.io‘s Shariah advisors have approved the basis and application of this Bai’ Murabaha contract.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Inflation and macroeconomic issues: Prices of almost everything are going up worldwide and coupled with the devaluation of taka, this is making products costlier. As the spending capacity of people are narrowing down, there is a possibility that businesses such as Interactive Cares may face a decline in sales. 
    • Interactive cares’ strategy: Interactive Cares is a learning platform for a diverse set of users — from university students to graduates looking for jobs or higher study opportunities, to jobholders and corporates looking to enrich their CV or pivot their career with on-demand skills. Their partnership with qualified instructors and high quality production of these courses further help them in retaining existing customers. Such products can be considered as price inelastic. 
  • 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.
    • Interactive cares’ strategy: The business is heavily concentrated on online sales and services. Around 80% of sales is generated through online orders. Therefore, political instability can only hurt an insignificant part of Interactive cares’ operation. 
  • Credibility: Interactive Cares has successfully repaid investors of their first campaign on biniyog.io and they did it on time. They have also repaid 35% of their ongoing contract.

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

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

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

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.

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

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 10 months, the markup profit can be 15% (instead of 16%). 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. 15% in 10 months means 18% per annum)

Interactive Cares will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. A  security cheque will also be kept with biniyog.io.
