Excerpt: The purpose of this article is to propose a simple definition for the analysis of concrete situations involving the concept of social capital (hereinafter referred to as SC). This definition will then be used to determine the circumstances in which SC helps poor rural social groups reduce their social exclusion and improve their living conditions. The data for exploring this issue were obtained from various studies of rural organizations in Mexico and Central America undertaken by the authors of this article (Flores and Rello, 2002). These studies analyzed successful experiences of rural organizations and the factors that account for this result, including social capital. In this context, success means achievements and advances in the objectives set by the organizations themselves. Some of these rural organizations experienced a crisis after a period of expansion, which meant that the causes of their problems and decline could therefore be analyzed.
