Avaliação socioeconômica do PRONAF no Estado do Paraná

by Bueno, Luciano Ribeiro

Abstract (Summary)
This research aims to analyse the socioeconomic impact on the thirty cities that obtained most credit benefits from Programa Nacional de Fortalecimento da Agricultura Familiar (PRONAF) in state of Paraná. Therefore, it was studied the state intervention in its agriculture in the postwar years. It showed that the family farm remained forgotten until the mid-nineties. It also showed that during the period from 2000 to 2006, the program has been expanding within the state of Paraná as well as within Brazilian federation. Besides, it indicates that the percentage of sources and contracts destined for the state was larger in comparison to what was destined for the thirty cities that used most the credit benefits from the program, that is, there was a decentralisation of sources. In order to analyse the socioeconomic impact on the thirty cities that obtained most credit from PRONAF, it was conducted an analysis of the productive, social and fiscal dimension, in which were used descriptive and inferential statistics. The productive analysis indicates that the program had a big impact. The social and fiscal analysis shows, however, that the impact had low intensity. Thus, family farm is more and more dependants on modern agricultural products since the finance provided by the program aims to increase the agricultural production. As a result, PRONAF occupies, after twelve years, an important role in the debate about rural development since it is essential to the family farm.
