Assume that as a local government financial analyst you are asked to project the feasibility of a loan to a proposed public service venture for its start-up funding. The venture’s principals estimate that, at the end of 5 years, they will be able to pay back up to $800,000 from revenues accruing to the venture’s activities. Assuming that your organization’s current “average cost of capital” is 4.8% (the “discount rate”). Assuming monthly compounding, what is the maximum amount your government can commit to the venture for its start-up?
