Many historical researches display a society with plenty of debtors, amongst whom people from all social conditions are found. From this follows that debtors were not necessarily rich or necessarily poor people. However, to which extent can credit have influenced specific enrichment or impoverishment processes, processes that in the long term established social differentiations which shaped the specific historical evolution of each society? This seminar aspires to put researches on various times and countries on the role played by credit in the rural world in common.
