Exchange rate instability: Bangladesh imports most of the raw materials related to clothing manufacturing (e.g. tapes, zippers, yarn, fabrics). Considering the current volatility of the exchange rate, a major instability in the market may hamper imports. However, this will not just impact MIB Lifestyle in particular, but all small clothing manufacturers.
MIB Lifestyle is planning to tackle this by buying the fabric beforehand using investment, so that the business remains safe against future uncertainties.
Inflation rate: Bangladesh has faced an inflation rate of 7.68% that is the highest recorded in the last nine-years. Inflation rate has hiked unprecedentedly globally. Price of everything going up effect MIB Lifestyle‘s sales and due collection.
It is needless to say that inflation rate hike is a global issue currently. To keep the business stable and survive, small businesses have to take measures such as offering discounts, bundle offers etc. For MIB Lifestyle, this is easier to offer since they have their own outlet. This may reduce their margin by a little, but it will keep the business running.
High season-based sales sensitivity: Just like most other fashion brands, MIB’s sales are also heavily dependent on Eid-ul-Fitr sales. Considering the current financial crunch the economy is going through, the business might not get their expected number of orders from the vendors and buyers.
MIB Lifestyle provides sewing services to top brands like Sailor, Twelve, Textmart, Vogue etc. This lessens their dependency on the seasonal sales to some extent.
biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. The products will then be handed over to MIB Lifestyle within a very short time frame. MIB Lifestyle would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since MIB Lifestyle 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 considering their cash-flow.
They have existing loans without interest from friends and family. However, that should not be an issue in repayment given their profit margins and ability to collect dues from retailers, especially after Eid season. ==============
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 100% within 6 months, the markup profit can be 9% (instead of 11.25%). 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. 9% in 6 months means 18% per annum against current 15% per annum)
MIB Lifestyle will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. A personal guarantee security cheque will also be kept from the business owner.
