“We gave our hands to Five Thousand Miles to support us by opening new markets in the African continent. They have an extensive number of contacts and we started working three months before traveling to this country. We’ve had our first journey in February this year and in July we already have our products in the destination country. Since the moment we landed until the moment we returned to Portugal we had 100% of support. They were always available and punctual to offer us help. We are heading a good way and would like to thank Five Thousand miles for all the support during this process.”
