Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / amortization
English term or phrase: capi
This is an abbreviation in a column heading of an amortization table.
The columns are:
Interest (*=capi),
Principal Remaining Due

In each line of the table,
the rate is shown as 3%,
the Principal + Interest (*=capi) = Amount

What does capi mean? The asterisk doesn't seem to refer to a footnote, because there are no footnotes.

neutral  Daryo: sounds tempting, but without seeing the numbers you can't be sure // "Principal + Interest =capital" makes sense for a return on invested capital but not much in a loan repayment table!
