November 2019: stable above 900 euro

This is the fourth month in a row where my interest income is around 900 euro or above, a good indication that it may stay this way. Somewhere next year I hope this will go over, and stay above, 1,000 euros per month. Investors in The Netherlands need to write down the sum of their …

October 2019: vacation update

In this monthly update I’ll show you the returns and results of my crowdfunding and crowdlending investments. It is a bit shorter than usual, because I’m currently on vacation.

Visit to Bondora

In Tallinn, Estonia, I visited the Bondora office. The office building is located a 15 minute drive outside of the old historical town center.
