Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery sells 21-day old chicks that are hatched in-house. Additionally, the business has a poultry feed reselling business along with beekeeping and fruit farming.
The business buys eggs from local farmers or from farms in the Gaibandha district. Around 80% of the chicken is sold to local farmers, and the rest is sold outside. Only some loyal customers are occasionally provided with credit facility for a short period of time; all other transactions are made by instant payment, which saves the business from credit risk.
In the beginning of the business, one incubator was used to hatch 100 eggs. Nearly 3,000 eggs can now be hatched with the advanced incubators. As the demand for young chicks is growing over time, the business is facing a sweet trouble being unable to keep up with the demand. So, they are looking to use the capital to buy an incubators which will help them cater to rising demand.

Mr. Monowarstarted his work life in Gazipur Tokyo Mode Ltd in 2007. After this he got an opportunity to work in a buying house, Jerome Industry in the sampling section.
From childhood, he loved cattle and planting trees in his small nursery. So, he wanted to start his own business instead of working for others. So, he started with a small farm consisting of local bred chicken (দেশী মুরগীর খামার). After seeing all the other farms facing a huge loss in this business, he wanted to do farming in a different way.
Beside his job he started with buying 10 pieces of chicken. He collected the eggs from these chickens and bought a machine, which could hatch 100 eggs. Now he has machines that can cater to hatching of almost 3,000 eggs per month.
He has received training from Department of Youth Development (যুব উন্নয়ন অধিদপ্তর) and started rearing chicken hatched by his own machine. He also took training from BIDA in 2018, BSCIC (Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation), Gaibandha in 2019, and from M4C Project and Better Stories in 2022.
Currently he is facing difficulties to meet the huge demand. To diversify his overall business model, he has initiated bee farming and also has a fruit production business. Each wing of the business generates good level of revenue and margin.
Investors will go into a Murabahah agreement (sale contract) with Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery for purchasing incubator machines to increase the production of chicks and some other items.
It will be a “buy-and-sell” process where investors will first buy products through biniyog.io. Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery will then buy those items from investors on credit and pay the amount over 12 months in 8 instalments.
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 Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery .
biniyog.io has proposed a price to Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery for the products after considering a minimum 16% profit on actual cost of product procurement. Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery has agreed to it.
Investors can expect to get their returns over 12 months in 8 instalments:
Price volatility of the poultry products: Abnormal price fluctuations have been observed for almost all kinds of poultry products in the last one and a half months. If the abnormal fluctuating trend continues, the business might not be able to keep a healthy profit margin by utilising the funds.
Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery’s strategy: The business has a multi-winged business model (egg hatching, poultry feed reselling and honey production) that helps it move capital according to seasonality and ongoing trends.
Inflation and macroeconomic issues: Prices of almost everything are going up worldwide and coupled with the devaluation of taka, this is making products costlier. The price of poultry feed, chick and accessories have become volatile at this time of uncertainty. Significant price hikes of such products can hurt the profit margin of the business badly.
Maa Agro Farm and Poultry Hatchery’s strategy: This is a macroeconomic crisis that is likely to hurt almost every kind of business. However, being a producer of chicks and reseller of poultry feed, the business gets the flexibility of availing chicks and feed at a lower rate than most of the competitors. Thus, it helps the business to keep a better margin.
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 10 months, the markup profit can be 15% (instead of 10%). 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)
