The Business

Accordion Content

Khushbu sells in-house manufactured yoghurt and sweets. The business was started almost one and a half years ago. Three types of yoghurt (Kheer yoghurt, white yoghurt, sour yoghurt) and one type of roshmalai sweet are sold by the business. Among the mentioned items, Kheer yoghurt is the blockbuster product of the business. Khushbu sells to over 40 shops located in different parts of  Chattogram city. All the transactions are made in cash except for a very few buyers who clear the payment within 1-2 days after delivery. The business collects raw materials such as milk, sugar, etc. from nearby locations. For instance, they purchase the milk from a dairy farm located at Chandmia road, Chattogram.
The business has a vast demand for milk powder. To avoid the price hike issue, the business is planning to purchase milk powder in bulk and store it for use. Moreover, the business plans to sell the milk powder product using its internal channels. 

The business has repaid 100% of its repayment of the previous campaign.    

Office/Factory Address: Lalkhan Bazar, Chattogram. 

FAQ:
💡 Is the business Shariah-compliant?

  • The business model (selling different kind of yoghurt and sweets) 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?

Mr. Abdur Rahman is the proprietor of Khushbu. He has been involved in business from the early stage of his life. He has experience in the poultry and fisheries business that he used to run some years ago. He shifted to making and selling yoghurt because of his prior knowledge of this line of business as his family has been involved in the sweet shop business.  

He has a sweet shop at his village that he has inherited from his father. Along with that business, he has set up his yoghurt business at Chattogram on his own.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Looking to work with a new product: The business is trying to create a sales channel for trading milk powder to local food businesses. Working with a new product can often lead to heavy initial costs and system loss costs that might result in significant delay in repayments.    
    • Khushbu’s strategy: The business has done their homework (market research) for the product in the local market. The business has been operating in this market for a long time now. Therefore, Khushbu already has resources for sourcing and selling this new product. Moreover, the business will be mostly making cash transactions.       
  • Inflation and macroeconomic issues: Prices of materials are going up worldwide and coupled with the devaluation of taka, this is making products costlier. The price of food ingredients needed for making yoghurt such as milk, sugar, etc., small dairy product processing equipment and the price of packaging materials have become volatile at this time of uncertainty. Significant price hikes of such products can hurt the profit margin of the business badly.
    • Khushbu’s strategy: The business will be mainly purchasing milk powder in bulk to mitigate the price volatility of this item. Moreover, the business will be trading the milk powder using its internal channels to generate additional revenue.  
  • 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. Khushbu would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since Khushbu will choose the items before biniyog.io buys them.

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