The Business

Accordion Content

Mesmerizee is a footwear store that supplies quality men’s footwear all over the country through retail and wholesale channels. Mr. Rayhan, owner of Mesmerizee, started his journey of footwear business in 2021. Facebook and e-commerce platforms were used to reach the targeted customers. The business grew gradually from there on and revenue started generating from both online and offline sales.

The business currently has one showroom and one warehouse. Online sales are generated by its Facebook page. The business is currently able to generate revenue from multiple wings (both retail and wholesale). Being located close to the Jahangirnagar University has enabled the business to acquire customers quite easily. The local demand drives significant offline sales. The business procures the products from wholesalers, agents and manufacturers. But the business often struggles to source products directly from the manufacturers mainly because of shortages of funds. Due to this reason, the business often misses out on lucrative offers. Having enough funds will enable the business to make better profit margins on the same kind of products they have been trading.

  • 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.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Not getting the expected volume of products: The business has to source the products from multiple sources. Sometimes, the required category or amount of products becomes unavailable that might result in a significant decrease in revenue of the product.      
    • Mesmerizee’s strategy: The business owner has a good level of networking with the many suppliers and agents. Additionally, the business is planning to purchase products in bulk to avoid any sudden stock-out situation.
  • Intense competition: Export oriented shoes have good demand in the domestic market, and recently many online marketplaces have onboarded several sellers of export oriented footwear products. Especially, there are many online sellers operating their business through F-commerce nowadays just the same as Mesmerize. Customers get numerous options while choosing and buying shoes.
    • Mesmerizee’s Strategy: The business is on constant look out for sourcing unique and attractive products for offering it to the customers. Moreover, the business has already acquired a good customer base through F-commerce who also help increase the sales by “word of mouth” channel. The business also uses a planned Facebook boosting method for hitting the expected level of revenue from F-commerce sales.  
  • Inflation: Any increase in the price of raw materials would have an effect on selling prices to local buyers, possibly resulting in a decrease in sales volume.
    • Mesmerizee’s strategy: The business is planning to make some bulk purchases with the funding. This step is expected to mitigate the price hike issue to a tolerable level.
  • 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, if not hugely impacted by macroeconomic issues.

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

Mesmerizee will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. Additionally, a personal guarantee security cheque will be kept from the business owner. A guarantor will be introduced to the contract as an extra layer of security for the investors.
