    [eng] Ricardo Abramovay — Rural loans and public policies in the Brazilian Sertâo. The policy of reinforcing family agriculture has changed the relationship of the Brazilian State to its rural milieu. 750 000 families have benefited from credit, while half of them had never had any access to finances before. The use of bank intermediation however constitutes a bottleneck that threatens the integrity of the policy itself. Banks are very selective, they tend to avoid the most poor of the rural population or limit their access to credit only. Local financing constitutes a means stimulating the economic initiatives of rural inhabitants, in particular in the Sertâo-semi-arid region of the Northwest.
