Cooperativa Agraria Norandino Ltda (Norandino) is a second-tier cooperative based in Piura, northern Peru. The cooperative has been a longstanding Oikocredit partner (since 2006).

Norandino represents 24 committees in the regions of Piura, Tumbes, Cajamarca and Amazonas. The committees jointly represent more than 3,000 small- scale farmers (2018).

They have received a number of credit lines, which are primarily used to support the harvest campaigns of the three most important products: coffee, cocoa and cane sugar.

Norandino has worked with disadvantaged producer groups since its foundation back in 1995.
