My name is Susie and I’m so happy you’re here. Three years ago I packed suitcases into my car and left Rome, Italy. Discovering Portugal while on the road was a surprise that changed my life and I’ve called this amazing country my home since.
As a small business owner myself I’ve felt the immediate and abrupt impact of the crisis. I had to shut down my boutique real estate and relocation agency in the Algarve [Vivo in Portogallo] as many of our deals were suspended due to the current situation.
I started Pequenas Empresas Portugal as I wanted a way to discover and support other small businesses in Portugal. I hope this network not only creates hope, but real connections so we can stand tall together and pull through these darker days.
