This volume discusses the development of rural finance in China through three key issues: rural areas, agriculture, and farmers. It addresses the behavior of rural households in rural finance, including types of financial demand, financing preferences and influencing factors, whether the current financial demand of rural households is effective, their credit behavior and investment preference, formal credit, and credibility and risk preference; the role of the agricultural loan market in rural finance, including the demand-supply relationship, the determination of the interest rate, financial ecology, the increase in rural income, agricultural development, information discrepancy, and the demonstration effect; and the role of the government and financial institutions, including new financial institutions. The final chapter considers the transformation of rural households from one type to another under specific constraints, as well as private financing, national financial support, and the accumulation of social capital.
