  • This paper begins with a brief survey about productivity growth measures in which we argument favorably to Tornqvist-Theil index. Next, it presents some features regarding the destination of credit loaned by the Brazilian Program to support family farming. The impact of the program is evaluated by comparing between a group of products benefited by it and a control group. The paper concludes that the program has had a positive impact for 1997-1998 and a negligible effect in 1999.
