The present project of the Bolsa Estágio de Pesquisa no Exterior program aims to gatherthe indispensable documentary repertoire of this master's research. The object of this research project is the financing of the coffee production in the Parahyba Valley between 1831 and 1850, that is, during the period of its organization, under the transatlantic slave trade. The main objective is to examine the relationship between creditors and debtors along the credit and trade network that formed the central core of the coffee economy. This flow of goods and loans involved slave traders, planters, exporting firms (mainly from the United States) and factors. Analyzing the relations that the North American companies established with the other agents, the research aims to expand the possibilities of investigation on the theme that were little explored by historiography. The internship will consist mainly of the consultation of the North American archives on-site.
