Definition for : Co-financing
"Co-financing" is a practice whereby several entities join together to co-finance a project or provide funds to a company. Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) promote the practice of co-financing whereby the MDB only finances a minority of the overall Debt or Equity investments, but its presence acts as a Credit enhancement (an umbrella against Political risk in particular).
