The objective of the researches that originated this paper is to acknowledge displacement created in the lives and routines of the family farmer of semi-arid region of the North-east of Brazil with the introduction of the policies of conditional income transference. The money of this policies added to the money from other transferences, are they appropriate, are they used and represented upon the families of those farmers? To answer this question let's begin from four ideas: 1) nowadays the territorialization of capital tend to balance itself out in the combination of territories that produce wealth and territories of transference of income; 2) the introduction of the money from public transferences promotes displacement in relation to positions and availability of individuals in their families as well as the families in their local sociability networks; 3)in the new policies for family farming in semi-arid region, runs the idea development for consumption; 4) the State has become main player in the production of those displacement.
