Sumario:In recent years regional economic historiography has shown that, like other Latin American the cities, in Salta, credit in its various forms, invigorated the most important of the time commercial and productive activities. These studies focused particularly on the last three decades of the viceregal period prior to the revolutionary outbreak. The purpose of this article is to contribute to these recent studies as it progresses on the structural and relational dynamics of the notarial credit practice in Salta between 1760 and 1776, at which time it was still part of the Government of Tucumán. A unprecedented period for the problem addressed, marked by convulsed political and civil events and institutional changes that would lead years later, in its appointment as the capital of the Municipality of Salta del Tucumán. The survey of the debts formalized in payment obligations in the books of notaries existing in the Historical Archive of Salta together with the preparation of series, relational analysis and historiographic reflection are the theoretical and methodological tools that are used, and that allow to analyze the characteristics, relevance and impact that credit quota to the economic and social life of this colonial district.
