Cooperativa Norandino

Microfinance (Social)

Cooperativa Norandino (Norandino) is a locally anchored savings and loans cooperative that finances small-scale farmers in Northeast Peru where still a very limited number of people have access to financial products and services.

Norandino has received a loan from Hivos-Triodos Fund that will enable coffee farmers to renovate their plants which are at risk of rust disease if they are not regularly renovated. It is an innovative project with a strong focus on sustainable agricultural practices.

With this investment Hivos-Triodos Fund has expanded its agricultural value chain investment activities - one of the pillars of the fund's strategy.

KEY INDICATORS as of 31 December 2015:

- number of loan clients: 5,216
- percentage of female clients: 19%

- number of savings clients: 5,124



Whoever you are, and wherever you live in the world, you are likely to want permanent access to financial services. Microfinance banks play a crucial role providing access to finance to an increasing number of people living on low-incomes. We finance microfinance institutions because they help to build inclusive financial sectors, where the majority of people have access to financial services, leading to a sustainable basis for balanced social and economic development.
