The Business

Accordion Content

Shopan Agro Farm has been operating for around 2 years now. The business has been working tirelessly to build its brand as one of the essential destinations for both the farm owners and final consumers. As part of its brand establishing strategy, the business has been keeping considerably lower margins from all levels of customers. The business has sold over 30 bulls during the last Eid-ul-Adha. 

The business has been pushing to create a stable sales channel of B2B business through which they plan to generate a minimum expected level of revenue. For implementing this step, the business needs to focus on its marketing strategies and tap the right promotional channels. The business has already started doing Youtube reviews through a Youtube channel. Incurring cost for brand building comes with a significant cost and effort that might result in a liquidity crisis for the business that will ultimately result in a “cow stock-out” situation. As the business generates a significant amount of its revenues through its wholesale wing, any product stock-out situation is likely to affect its revenue significantly. Therefore, the business is looking to raise funds to maintain an optimum level of cow stock and continue to trade seamlessly. 

Apart from the cow farming business, Shopan is also involved in a honey business. The honey business is mainly operated through its online page. Additionally, various research projects and honey awareness work.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Death of an asset: Livestocks bear the risk of sudden death. In such cases, business incurs a loss of capital.
    • Shopan Agro’s strategy: After purchase, the business takes vet services from the locally available vets. As there are numerous small and medium cow farms in Sirajganj, there are many vets operating in that area. Some vets even provide 24/7 services. Having proper veterinary services available reduces the chance of death of livestocks significantly. Point to note here is that, once the cattle has been sold to the business, investors do not bear any liability of disease or death, and the business is liable to repay investors.  
  • Not achieving expected growth of cattle after rearing: After raising the bulls for the intended period of time, there is a possibility that the growth won’t be as anticipated. The business’s profit margin might be significantly impacted by this.
    • Shopan Agro’s strategy: The business mainly generates revenue through its B2B wholesale wing. Therefore, only a very few cows are kept for rearing. Therefore, such an issue will not bring in any significant financial stress on the business.
  • Price hike of cattle feed: Price of almost everything has gone up in recent days. If the price of cattle feed goes up significantly, the profit margin of the business might be hurt significantly. 
    • Shopan Agro’s strategy: The business enjoys location advantage due to being located in a rural area. The food cost is cheaper in the rural areas due to a lot of cattle food options being available. Therefore, the business has been and is expected to maintain a tolerable position for itself in case of the current price hike trend.  

According to biniyog.io’s in house analysis, payment delay is not expected if the business continues to perform in the same way they have been performing for the last 2 years. However, livestock business can face uncertainties with cattle.; If such a case occurs, biniyog.io will investigate the issue and let investors know for any payment delay.
Point to be noted here is that the profit margin will not change in case of any payment delay.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. Shopan Agro Farm  will act as collection agent for cows. The products will then be handed over to Shopan Agro Farm within a very short time frame.

Shopan Agro Farm  would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since Shopan Agro Farm  themselves will be choosing the items before biniyog.io buys them.

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

Shopan Agro Farm  will share instalment cheques and a security cheque with biniyog.io. Moreover, a guarantor will be introduced in the contract as an extra layer of safety for the investors.
