Carina Nicolas Zamora

Carina is an entrepreneur and mother in Ayacucho Peru located in the Andes Mountians.

Through CARE’s micro-savings and lending programs, Carina and other women have helped reduce malnutrition by raising guinea pigs that provide a stable source of protein and income for their families. The CARE program organized women into small groups, gave them loans of $100 and taught them how to raise guinea pigs, a local delicacy. Today, Carina continues to raise and sell guinea pigs to restaurants and local markets and is able to provide for and feed her children.
