This article describes some of the economic practices and strategies adopted by the Indian tradesmen in Mozambique after this country's independence in 1975. Despite their 'natural' propensity to operate in the context of a market economy, these tradesmen were able to overcome the obstacles that arose in their way as a consequence of the civil war and of the planned economy by drawing on resources that certain sociologists would characterise as 'traditional'. Cet article décrit certaines des pratiques et stratégies économiques adoptées par les commerçants indiens au Mozambique après l'indépendance du pays en 1975. En dépit de leur « naturelle » propension à opérer dans un contexte d'économie de marché, ces commerçants ont été capables de dépasser les obstacles dressés sur leur chemin par les effets de la guerre civile et l'économie planifiée, faisant appel à des ressources qu'une certaine sociologie désigne comme traditionnelles. Este artigo relata algumas das estratégias e práticas económicas dos comerciantes indianos depois da proclamação da independência de Moçambique em 1975. Vocacionados a agirem numa economia de mercado, estes comerciantes souberam, contornar os obstáculos impostos pela economia planificada e pela guerra civil utilizando recursos que uma certa sociologia designa por tradicionais.
