According to IFC website, the project consists of establishing a global DARP facility to buy pools of non-performing loans in several emerging markets. This facility will be funded by IFC and by one or more funds or other investment vehicles managed by affiliates of Apollo Global Management, LLC. The following are the expected development impacts:
1. Capital relief. The project will enable financial institutions to offload their NPLs, strengthening their balance sheets, freeing up capital and generating liquidity and capacity to originate new loans.
2. Market transparency. As financial intermediaries increase the sale of NPLs to private investors, the transparency of these institutions' balance sheets improves, as these assets are priced according to market conditions.
3. Access to finance. The project will facilitate the normalization of obligations of households and small and medium enterprises, preventing a large number of them from losing their assets, regaining access to formal credit, and preserving jobs.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IFC
The Compliance Advisor Ombudsman (CAO) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an IFC or MIGA- financed project. If you submit a complaint to the CAO, they may assist you in resolving a dispute with the company and/or investigate to assess whether the IFC is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. If you want to submit a complaint electronically, you can email the CAO at CAO@worldbankgroup.org. You can learn more about the CAO and how to file a complaint at http://www.cao-ombudsman.org/
