This paper explores the requirements and determinants for the institutional viability of rural financial intermediaries in the developing countries. It identifies the constraints on viability resulting from a hostile environment, characterized by inflation, terms of trade and other relative price changes, and increased risks. It recommends survival measures for rural financial institutions engaged in a process of restructuring while facing this hostile environment.
