“Due to the political and economic instability that my country is going through, I felt the need to settle somewhere where I could feel safe and give a better future to my family. I found an article on the internet where they talked about the quality of life that Portugal offers, but I didn’t really know how I could access the life they were talking about. Orience contacted me and we decided, based on my profile, that the best option was to invest in an investment fund in Portugal and thus obtain a residence permit for me and my family.”
