If you don’t work in finance, chances are you don’t use words like first loss tranche, investment grade, and institutional investors. I’ve been working in finance for years, so this terminology is now second nature. But since my friends often ask about my work, I wanted to explain it in a way that doesn’t require a business degree to understand. Here, I describe a program called MCPP Infrastructure that IFC recently launched. The “M” doesn’t stand for mango, but that’s what I use (along with an apple, orange, and kiwi) to illustrate the concept.
