Overview

Small retailers require financing to manage and expand their business. They face financing problems while managing inventory, sometimes unable to stock necessary items. This investment model will help them purchase products at a marginal mark-up, which they will repay within 7 days. They will purchase again after 7 days if necessary.

This is a “buy-and sell” (Murabahah) contract, which will be re-used every week for 12 weeks. Investors can expect to get an ROI of 3.78%* (15%+ annualized) over 12 weeks.

The Business

Accordion Content

The investment will be used to purchase and sell products to small retail businesses. The retail businesses will be selected by partnering up with a start-up called SupplyLine working in the retail industry.

SupplyLine serves retailers by giving them the best prices for stocking products, and offers collateral-free invoice finance to help them maintain healthy cash flow. They procure the products from renowned FMCG brands having a distributor license, and using their distribution channel, they supply the products to retailers. They have an order management tool too, which they analyse to help provide collateral-free financing. They have a unique business model which is backed by Accelerating Asia and Hustle Fund.

The retailers who will be given access to financing will be selected based on good transaction history. 

SupplyLine and biniyog.io has analysed complete transaction data of shortlisted retailers according to regular assessment process. After filtering out, retailers with regular repayment records and high volume of transactions have been selected.

FAQ:

💡 Is the business Shariah-compliant?

The business model (trading grocery items and FMCG goods) 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?

Investments have risks by definition, especially if they are halal. Please find possible risk details for this campaign in the “Risk” section below.

This information is sensitive and confidential, and details of Selected Retailers will only be shared with investors upon their request.

  • Strong connection management with the customers and the suppliers
  • Business model backed by Accelerating Asia and Hustle Fund  
  • Selected Retailers have good traction record

The Contract

Accordion Content

The investment is for a period of 12 weeks, expected from December 2022 to March 2023.

(Exact date will be finalized after financing is complete)

  • Projected Return on Investment (ROI): 3.78%
  • Projected ROI: 15% per annum

  • Investors will go into a Murabahah agreement (sale contract) with Selected Retailers for purchasing high-selling FMCG items.
  • It will be a “buy-and-sell” contract where investors will first buy products through biniyog.io. Selected Retailers will then buy those items from investors at 0.5% markup on credit and pay the amount within 7 days, and SupplyLine will be the ‘selling agent’. This cycle will continue for 12 weeks.
  • biniyog.io will ensure that necessary ownership and risk of asset possession has been taken on behalf of investors, and then sell to Selected Retailers using SupplyLine’s distribution channel
  • SupplyLine will deliver products, monitor the retailers and collect repayments from them.
  • Investors will share profits with biniyog.io and SupplyLine in the following manner:
    • 30.0% shared with SupplyLine
    • 7.0% shared with biniyog.io
    • Remaining 63% will be the profits of investors
  • This will result in expected 3.78% ROI in 3 months (approximately 15% annual ROI)*

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
  • Macroeconomic situation putting pressure on standard retails sales: Selected Retailers generate revenue by selling grocery and other daily essentials. Due to the current macroeconomic situation, the retailers may face an unforeseen drop in sales if people reduce their overall spending. This may result in delay in repayment, or less purchase by retailers. If retailers purchase less, investors’ profit will also decrease.  
  • Possibility of missing repayment deadline: The sales of daily goods is quite volatile. Because the sales vary widely day by day. For example, a retailer might generate sales of BDT 50,000 in one day of a particular time period of the month but they may fail to generate sales of BDT 50,000 for consecutive days at a different time period of the month. This may also reduce investor’s profits.

 biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership through SupplyLine, based on orders received from Selected Retailers. The products will then be handed over to Selected Retailers.

Selected Retailers would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since SupplyLine will ensure the quality of the items.

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

SupplyLine will be in-charge of selling products, monitoring and collecting repayments from the retailers. They have been operating in this process for the past 2 years, and have built a reputation with retailers. Retailers are dependent on them to get regular product delivery and credit facility, so it is less likely that they will default repayments, unless unforeseen macroeconomic disruptions occur. 

Selected Retailers will share personal guarantee security cheques.
