Cooperativa de Ahorro y Crédito Norandino was founded in 2005 by several agricultural cooperatives to provide farmers in northern Peru, including coffee farmers, with adequate and competitive financial services.
The institution wishes to be the reference cooperative in rural and sustainable finance, improving the welfare of members, their families, their collaborators, and their community, by promoting value chains and strengthening the associative system. Norandino wants to be a reliable and participative credit and savings cooperative, which contributes to improving the well-being of the entire community by providing quality and efficient financial services, with social and environmental responsibility.
The cooperative finances more than 25,000 micro-entrepreneurs through its 16 branches and their customers live mostly in rural areas. All agencies are in the north of the country, in the provinces of Piura, Cajamarca and San Martin.
Norandino has a diversified product line: financing of the growing season and installation of new crops; marketing credit for agricultural cooperatives
