Abstract

One of the main challenges for the Colombian post-conflict is to develop sustainable
proposals for peasant families that were affected by the armed conflict. With the
purpose of analyzing this challenge, after the introduction, the second part of the paper presents the land possession dyna-mics in Colombia, criticizes the Green
Revolution approach and discusses theoretical concerns about agroecology. The
third section highlights the importance of combined microfinance in comparison to
financialized microfinance, for financing rural projects and agroecology. Furthermore, this part argues that the combination of agroecology and combined microfinance is a powerful tool to make scenarios sustainable for small producers. Finally, the fourth section concludes.
