thank you. yeah something similar to the ifc but in the private sector. I know micro finance, i guess maybe not too many PE funds do it. Not profitable enough, perhaps

Its very very tough for them to enter that type of market simply because infra hasn't been "proven" yet. It is still a nascent alternative asset class and the last thing they want to do is expose themselves by investing in a developing country. For now, they are trying to create Public Private Partnerships with states or countries that have tollways, roads, bridges with strong cash-flows.

Unfortunately in the states, the general public hates privatization so there have been a few failed deals like the much anticipated privatization of Illinois airports. However, with state bankruptcies expected to occur in the up-coming years the state governments will have little choice but to lease them to private funds (usually for a 100 years or so).

*note: If I was an infra fund, I would be watching California very closely...Golden Gate anyone?
