Résumé
This Master’ s dissertation aims at evaluating the organizational experience of small sertanejo (hinterland) farmers in the municipality of Valente, located 270 km fiom the city of Salvador, in the state of Bahia. The Small Farmers’ Association of the Municipality of Valente (AP AEB- V alente) is a socio-economic organization set up by the civil society, managed by the social movements ofthe sisal producing region and supported by national and intemational NGO’s. This experience was successful in making micro, small and medium-sized economic projects feasible (fiom small vegetable gardens and textile handicraft shops to micro goat milk processing plants and small sisal carpet and mat weaving shops), envisioning the dynamic sustainability of the region through an improvement of the economic activities adapters to the harsh conditions of the semi-arid environment. In our theoretic-empirical study we analyzed the Social Capital and showed that, through the organization, coalition and active participation of the small sertanejo farmers, it was possible to stimulate the active construction of social capital and, as a result, promote the strengthening of the social, economic, ecologic and cultural bases of the development process of a traditional sisal producing area in the state of Bahia. The AP AEB- Valente, therefore, is considered by us as being an important agent in the building of a development model adapted to the environment of a semi-arid, as well as being a concrete positive reference for future public policy proposals for the sustainable development of rural areas in the state of Bahia
