Alif Bank is the first micro-financing company in the Republic of Tajikistan that was established in 2014 and uses the concept of Islamic Finance. In 2020 Alif was transformed into a bank and is placed in Dushanbe with a subordinate in Tashkent.
Alif Capital offers the style of Murabaha, which is considered the most commonly used financing method in the Islamic banking industry. This means when a client needs funds for the purchase of an asset, Alif Capital buys the goods and sells it to the customer on the base of a deferred payment with a mark-up that was agreed by both parties earlier. Alif Capital transfers ownership of the goods to the customer and receives payment for the goods within a certain period of time, says website.
Alif Capital is also a pioneer in raising funds by a contract in the style of Musharak. This method means the customer deposits the funds in Alif and the bank put these funds into different projects through Murabaha. Everything that is realized as a result of investments is distributed between the customer and Alif Capital in accordance with previously agreed income distribution coefficients.
