699 in earnings in a fruitful month of June

A fruitful month of June delivered a profit of €699 with three main players: Robocash, Viainvest and Peerberry.

As you can see below, they have outperformed the month of May and are the three platforms my own sister has started investing in, and I’m sure she is delighted. 

In total, there was a return of €434 and a referral bonus of €265, still far from the target of €2,500 per month.

Other platforms that have also performed well and which I need to give a financial boost to are Lendermarket and Esketit.

As usual, the worst performers have been Housers, which has distributed €1 since January, and Mintos, which has returned €0 of the outstanding €710. 

Crowdestor has been half-hearted, as it has advanced some commitments, but has not delivered on the Renewable Energy project, which promised to pay €110K on 29 June.

This month I have invested up to my financial safety cushion (€2,900) between five platforms that offer me absolute confidence. I will give you all the details below.

I am very satisfied with the savings accumulated this year, which after six months stands at 52.94%, as you can see here. 

Here is what the month of June has brought:

Perhaps this doughnut is more visual to understand the distribution of my investments, some of which are in retreat and some of which are clearly on the rise:

As you can see in this graph, June has narrowly outperformed May and should improve on a monthly basis thanks to the contributions made:

And below I show you the most recommendable platforms in green, undesirable in orange and undesirable in red:

Peerberry (+info)

Spectacular month from Peerberry who has brought in €113 in profitability and a €115 welcome bonus via the link I provide below.

My sister, who has invested in this profitable platform that brings so much joy to more than 56,000 investors every month, has also signed up.

In June I added an additional €300 to my portfolio and have seen my return increase from 11.93% to 12.11% p.a. in just one month.

Here are the monthly earnings that Peerberry has been bringing me since November 2018. For more details, click here

This is the main panel, which contains the status summary of this great platform:

And this is the statement for the month of June, showing the € 5539.48 from closed projects that have been reinvested together with the interest generated and € 300 deposited:

In June, the repayment rate for Russian and Ukrainian projects reached 35%, which translates into €17.5m.

And this graph shows the good financial status of the projects funded in Peerberry, with delays of less than 15 days 😉

If you are interested in them, in this banner they add 0.5% of your investment if it exceeds 500€ during the first 30 days:

Viainvest (+info)

They have contributed a return of €18 in June and a further €40 in bonuses.

They continue to publish projects at a good pace, so I have increased my portfolio by another €200:

This month I have changed one of the parameters of autoinvest so that I only invest in short-term projects, as they offer the same return as the credit lines and I have free access to my savings within a maximum of 30 days.

If you want to start earning, this banner gives you €15 just by investing more than €50. What are you waiting for? With only 50€!

Robocash (+info)

Another 215€ of interest that Robocash has brought me in June!!!! And this month I have received another €60 bonus…. Great!

Such is my confidence that I have invested a record €1,900 in June, already over €22K and close to the €25K figure I will reach in August:

I am particularly excited to have surpassed €2K in interest earned in three and a half years and hope to double this figure in 9 months, even more so now that I am investing in two-year projects at 13% (+0.7% for having more than €15K invested):

Robocash Group is looking for new products in India and Indonesia, while in Vietnam, loans issued in 2022 increased by 125%.

78% of the projects funded are from RC Riga Singapore, which, as you can see above, are my favourite.

17 million in funding, have distributed more than half a million euros in profits and have 560 new investors.

Remember to invest for the long term, as the return is higher and the interest payment is monthly.

If you want a sample of how I invest, in April I set out my investment panel, which I have not changed.

Don’t miss the opportunity to join them in this banner, where they add 1% of your investment if it exceeds 500€ during the first month:

Lendermarket (+info)

In June I earned a return of €15 and another €10 in welcome bonuses.

Since the results are so satisfactory, in June I increased my portfolio by a further €300, taking it to over €2000 invested.

I maintain the plan to exceed €5,000 in December, even more so if Crowdestor projects meet their repayment schedule.

This is my panel as of 30 June:

Lendermarket is very easy to use and, as a sample, here you have this monthly statement that shows the main sections:

And for those of you who have asked me how the Lendermarket buy-back guarantee works, here is an example.

This is my most overdue project, which expired on 4 May and which executes the buy-back after 60 days. In other words, on 4 July I will be reimbursed the capital, the interest for the first month of the loan and the interest for late payment for the two months it has been delayed:

In May they added the new originator Credory to their portfolio, but I have not yet had a chance to invest in them.

If you want to benefit from their 1% promotion for investments over 300€, click on the banner:

Bondster (+info)

June has delivered €11 in returns and I have yet to see the improvement that the €150 contributed in May should have brought.

This is because many projects are overdue and do not pay interest until the 60 days are up, as you can see here:

In the meantime, I hold €75.56 delayed for more than 60 days, but this is because it is invested in a Russian originator and economic transactions to the EU are very limited.

Remember to select the parameters from Autoinvest and do not use any of the 3 available strategies. Never use them.

If you want to join this platform, get in this banner an additional 1% from 100€ of investment during the first 90 days:

Esketit (+info)

This month they have contributed €10 in interest and another €10 in a welcome bonus and are the platform with the highest annual return: 14.83%.

In June I added another €200 to my portfolio, which will exceed €1000 in July, as I plan to dedicate the same amount to the portfolio.

Below is my dashboard, where you can see that only €25.80 is overdue for more than 16 days out of the €814.26 invested:

More and more investors are trusting them and 300 new ones are being added every month. As of 30/06 we are 2875.

For those with more than €25K or €50K invested, the “Gold and Platinum categories” award +0.5% and +1% respectively.

In August I wrote a detailed article about this platform created by the founders of Creamfinance who have been in the market for 10 years, which you can read here.

They continue to keep their failed projects at ZERO and have already exceeded €1 million in interest on their €60M+ financed projects.

If you invest on this great platform, here is an additional 1% bonus for amounts over €100 for the first 30 days:

Estateguru (+info)

June has not been profitable because they make quarterly payments, so I will not receive the €16.50 due until July.

In this screenshot, the yield appears to be 0%, but it is actually 11%:

In July 2021 I invested €300 and another €300 in October and have already accumulated €41.25 in returns.

I will have to check their performance soon, as I have invested with them before, but suffered many delays. For now, it is being different.

In June they have been very active and have launched 14 new projects from 9.5% to 12%, reached €594M financed and exceeded 135,000 investors.

They already have offices in Estonia, Germany, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Armenia and the UK. Not bad, is it?

In addition, they have joined the European Investment Fund to participate in the financing of the European entrepreneurial ecosystem.

If you want to join them, in this banner you have a Welcome Bonus that brings an extra 0.5% to your investment for the first 90 days:

Kirsan Invest (+info)

June has given me €4, which will become €6 as soon as the new project pays interest.

This is the new project in which I have invested the accumulated €228, also for 6 months and at 13% per annum:

They currently have two projects in financing at 10% and 11% annual returns at 18 and 12 months, which I show you below:

They continue to close projects with some dynamism and have already financed 25 projects with an average return of 11.91%.

Since June, German has been added to the existing Spanish and English languages.

They have a welcome bonus of €10 from a minimum investment of €200, which you can take advantage of here.

Crowdestor (+info)

This month Crowdestor has contributed €47 in profitability and returned €48 of the principal of two projects.

They currently have two projects at 30% annual returns, but I still do not recommend investing in them.

If, despite this warning, you are still interested in them, you will find many blogs that offer welcome bonuses.

This month they have missed payments on the Renewable Energy project on two dates, but communication is not their strong suit and I don’t know why.

This is my current control panel, in full retirement since August 2020:

Housers (+info)

This week the deeds have been signed for one of the projects – Vara del Rey – which is rented for 1300€ per month thanks to the efforts of one of those affected, at least until we can register the change of administration in the Mercantile Register and then proceed with its sale, hopefully not much below the purchase price.

This month I should be happy because I have once again collected a little more than one euro, which has not happened since January….

To make matters worse, Housers keeps its 10% commission, oblivious to the two and a half year delay of this project:

The Housers nightmare continues to take away the sleep of many thousands of savers who trusted in their management and we still don’t see the light at the end of the tunnel…

In March I published the 150 projects overdue up to that date, some more than 38 months old. I’m sure that by now some more have been added, and that’s 41 months. And those that are missing…

Bulkestate (+info)

I am still waiting for the Amalijas Street project to be returned in September, 18 months behind schedule.

As soon as they pay, I will say goodbye to them for good. At least we have been kept informed.

Crowdestate (+info)

Still no news, apart from the third unsuccessful auction to sell off the Baltic Forest projects.

Crowdestate has filed a legal claim against the project managers.

Another platform that has lost investor confidence due to the accumulation of failed and delayed projects.

Remaining reported or doubtful platforms

We remain confident that justice will take its course and we will recover the failed investments between 2019 and 2020.

Since then, no platform has failed. Fingers crossed…

A few days ago I was asked to testify as a person affected by the Monethera case before the Guardia Civil, but at the end of June I have still not been called.

Investigations against Kuetzal, a company from which a part was recovered, appear to be ongoing in Colombia, Hong Kong, Malta and Russia.

Especially in the latter two countries, the prospects for recovery are very high thanks to the latest agreements reached.

Progress has been made in the proceedings against Envestio in Malta and Estonia, but at a somewhat slower pace….


In fact, I obtained €804, which is not enough, because I was expecting a much better month of July. All the more so because I had high hopes for various Housers and Crowdestor projects.

Housers has failed in 7 of the 9 projects invested, while Crowdestor has met half of the expected payouts.

Nevertheless, the €804 of the total €141,934 invested are welcome:

And this is the graph of the profitability obtained since I started the blog in May 2019:

And now, let’s get to the month’s news, with big news from some of the platforms:

The BEST and recommended platforms with welcome BONUS

Peerberry (+info)

This month I have increased my portfolio by €300 and they are still a safe bet. They have contributed €36 with less than €3,000 invested. Does any bank offer this?

But the most important thing is the security it offers. And here is the proof, with less than 5% more than 16 days overdue:

Sólo un 0,63% retrasado más de 31 días;
Only 0.63% delayed more than 31 days

This month has been exceptional for Peerberry: its partner Credit Plus KZ earned more than €300K net after auditing 2020, Peerberry netted €142K, Senmo VN continues to perform well, SIB Group paid out €16,000 in interest after completion of the K32 real estate project, and they have achieved a €142K net profit. new record with €43M funded.

My goal at Peerberry is to reach Silver status (€10K) which offers an additional +0.5% and which I hope to achieve before December 😉

Here they add 0.5% of your investment if it exceeds 500 euros during the first 30 days:

Viainvest (+info)

Another €9 from Viainvest in July, and the additional €350 I added in June is already being felt.

Viainvest has exceeded 24,000 investors and €250M financed

For the time being, I continue to diversify on this platform by loan type, country of origin and amount. Here is a sample:

My medium-term goal for Viainvest is to increase my portfolio to around €3,000 with regular quarterly contributions.

In this banner you get €15 just for investing more than €50. What are you waiting for? With only 50€!

Robocash (+info)

How good it feels to win €69 on Robocash! This month has brought a few new developments, among which the TOP 10 among European platforms has been approaching.

It is one of the only ones that also operates in non-EU countries such as Singapore, the Philippines and Vietnam, among others.

In July I have increased my portfolio by €300 and my confidence in them is absolute.

Having invested over €5,000 I reached the Bronze category (+0.3% additional) and now, as in Peerberry, I am going for €10K (Silver category, which contributes +0.5%).

And I have some great news: the interview I conducted with Dmitry Balakhnin, Director of Communications at Robocash, will be published in August. I’m sure you’ll like it!

In this banner they add 1% of your investment if it exceeds 500€ during the first month:

Lendermarket (+info)

This month it has returned €5 with only €411 invested and maintains its return above 14%.

In July, they have exceeded €130 million in funding and 3,000 active investors.

And given its excellent figures, chairman and founder Aaro Sosaar has brought on board Endrik Eller as CEO and Omayra Roig as Head of Operations.

If you want to benefit from their 1% welcome promotion, click on this banner:

Bondster (+info)

Bondster has responded in July with €3, which is not enough for me, but it is true that a third of my portfolio is in arrears which will be paid in August because they pay them back promptly after 60 days of delay.

Pavel Klema replaced Jana Mückova as CEO in March and has done a great job since then.

The most significant of these has been the launch of the secondary market on 1 July, which makes investment even more attractive.

But he has also surrounded himself with a great team, the latest being the recruitment of a new marketing and sales manager: Richard Kouba.

If the economy allows me to do so, I will close this year with a portfolio of close to €1,000.

Get an additional 1% from €100 of investment for the first 90 days:

Nibble (+info)

I am still delighted with this easy-to-use platform which brought me €4 in July and about which I wrote a detailed article three weeks ago.

In total, it has generated €12.82 since mid-April, making it the platform with the highest return: 14.5% per annum.

Nibble offers micro-credits issued by Joymoney Spain and Joymoney Russia. Moreover, the latter will be 7 years old in August.

Nibble is currently in the process of obtaining the AML (Anti-Money Laundering) certificate.

They have also applied for a supervisory licence from the FSA (Financial Supervision Authority) of Estonia.

Remember that on August 31 ends the promotion in which they offer 11.7% instead of 9.7% in their classic investment strategy, with Buyback, with NO risk and with a minimum investment of 10€.

Esketit (+info)

It has contributed €3.63 in July and is already giving me my first joys. Its Buyback works without delays, it is easy to use and its autoinvest works autonomously so you don’t have to worry about it.

I will write a detailed article in August because it is still an unknown platform that deserves its place in the market.

Even more so if it comes from the founders of Creamfinance, created in 2012 with enormous success.

Here you get an additional 1% bonus on every investment over €100 you make during the first 30 days:

Platforms with some shadows, not recommended for investment

Crowdestor (+info)

This month Crowdestor is in this section as it has contributed €171 and I expect several returns at the beginning of August, but it has been, together with Housers, the “big disappointment”.

In July they launched their big bet called Crowdestor Flex, consisting of a 12% return payable daily and with a maximum contribution of €2,000 per month.

Please note that transferring the amount from the Flex account to the traditional Crowdestor account costs €1.

They have also gone for Auto Invest, although they have hardly advertised it. I do not recommend using this tool on this platform.

Crowdestor is experiencing some difficulties in financing its new projects and, as we all know, in dealing with its growing backlog of projects.

Here you can see that the number of projects with problems is almost double the number of those that are up to date with payments.

438 projects funded; 127 repaid; 113 current; 165 in arrears; 33 in recovery

For the time being and until they reduce their high risk of default, I do not recommend investing in this platform and I withdraw the welcome bonus.

Iuvo (+info)

Although it has returned €4 this month, I still have some doubts about this platform.

I started investing in roubles in their originator Kviku two months ago and have already seen an increase in profitability, but at extra risk, because no project has Buyback.

I must also say that Kviku has significant financial muscle, with the group having been on the market since 2013 without incident.

Euro investments are safer, although their return is low according to my expectations.

But you know the best thing of all? It turns out that the 10 investments in roubles at 19.74% average yield are current, while 2/3 of the 16 investments with Buyback in euro are in arrears:

On the other hand, they apply an undesirable exchange rate (approx. 4% above the market).

In short, I will wait at least another month to see how it evolves. It is still a platform that I have been testing since December.

In any case, I do not recommend investing in it today.

Run away from these platforms. Don’t even think of investing

Housers (+info)

This month Housers has fulfilled 50%: on the one hand it has paid the second commitment of the Albufera III project, but has not paid the first commitment of Torres de Paterna, in addition to 6 other unfulfilled projects. 

And this is the second opportunity offered to the developer Construbecker to fulfil its non-payments, so we will have to wait for the success of the complaints made against it.

On the other hand, active proceedings remain open against Housers, its managers and several property developers for fraud.

The CNMV (National Securities Market Commission) was informed on 13 July of these criminal investigations against them and may act accordingly.

In addition, on 19 July, the collective complaint for the crime of fraud was filed with more than 700 documents provided, which was delayed due to its difficulty before The National High Court and which affects the operations known as “savings” and “investment”.   The judge should rule on its admission for processing. 

On another front, several investors affected by the Vara del Rey project have joined forces to take back the management of the company. A letter has already been sent to the administrator to convene an extraordinary meeting.

On the other hand, they claim to have reached 130,000 registered users in July (some are still unaware of this) and have returned three projects, but there are only 212 to go!

Mintos (+info)

I have been refunded €40 this month and there is now €806 still to be recovered, mostly from Finko AM. 

The good news is that Mintos has recovered 100% of Aforti this month, which was unexpected.

Among other news, Iute Credit has issued an unaudited first half-year report, DelfinGroup has launched new bonds worth €5 million and Mintos has downgraded the status of E-cash and Dziesiatka.

But the most anticipated is that Mintos has announced that it will become an investment platform authorised by the FCMC (Financial Capital Market Commission of Latvia) by the end of August. 

Finally, Mintos has added Fenchurch Legal to its portfolio.

I continue to withdraw my portfolio, as the investment in one of the TOP originators at the time left more than €1,000 in the process of recovery, of which I will recover a maximum of 70%. 

Bulkestate (+info)

It has launched two single projects this month, one of which for a total of €1.6 million that have been funded by fewer than 18 investors. That’s almost €100K per person!

It seems crazy to me, even more so with the delays this platform is suffering, but I am not one to tell anyone where to invest their money. 

My project will be returned a year late and, since they have no secondary market, I can only wait. 

Lenndy (+info)

This month I have been refunded almost €15 of the total €800 of capital still outstanding, which will not be repaid before March 2024. 

In May I put my two assets up for sale at a 21% discount, but no one has yet been interested. 

Crowdestate (+info)

It has reported that Baltic Forest’s insolvency administrator has liquidated €34K worth of various tools and equipment. 

The real estate assets have yet to be assessed to offset the six civil claims against them, with Crowdestate investors being the most harmed. 

The EFSA (Estonian Financial Authority) has granted them the certificate of regulated payment institution and, as a consequence, there have been several changes in their management structure.

In addition, they have financed the first Portuguese project in the Algarve, have had 8 projects repaid, 22 are in arrears (€10.9 million) and €3 million remain unpaid.  


That’s right, a good month of June. And if the forecast holds true, July will be even better. Much better.

But of course, as always, it is up to Housers and its irregular payment schedule to make it happen.

Below I show how the €844 earned this month has been distributed:

Best platforms

In June Crowdestor provided me with €131 in interest and made two partial repayments from Forestlands Investments, which will be paid in full in July.

I continue to take the opportunity to balance the portfolios, reducing Crowdestor, where I still have €18,600 and increasing in Peerberry and Robocash, above all.

It appears that the legal proceedings on the Fertilizer Export Financing project are continuing and there could be interesting developments in October.

Here is a summary of the status of the projects from their website:

412 funded; 119 repaid; 99 current; 161 overdue; 33 in recovery; Capital lost: 0€

They currently have 7 active projects with an annual return between 22%-34%.

Peerberry has behaved as well as ever and has given me €43 in interest. In June I increased my portfolio by another €1,000 and now have €2,500 invested.

Far from reaching the magic €10K figure that will allow me to earn an additional +0.5% interest, I aim to reach it by December this year.

In June I took the opportunity to invest €350 in two real estate projects for 9 months at 11.5% p.a. and a trial €20 in a “long-term” project for three years at 12% p.a. with monthly payments.

Curious graph: 23% of its investors hold a portfolio between €10K and €25K, followed by 21% of the lucky ones who have more than €100K invested:

In addition, Germany is the country with the most investors (27%), followed by Spain (11%) and the Netherlands (6%). It is clear that it is a platform that builds trust.

In June they changed the look and feel of their website and app, which are now lighter and more intuitive.

They have also presented the good 2020 results of some of their partners: SOS Credit CZ, Credit7 UK, Nado Deneg UK, Gofingo UA, Slon Credit UA, AutoMoney UA, etc.

Here they add 0.5% of your investment if it exceeds €500 during the first 30 days:

I am still delighted with Robocash, which has brought me €96 in interest this month, although July looks even better as several projects are coming to an end.

In June I increased the portfolio by another €700 and I am now close to €6,000 invested. In November I expect to reach €10,000 to qualify for “silver status” which offers an additional +0.5% interest.

Given its consistency and the security it gives me, I invested €500 in a single project for 10 months at 12.3% per annum.

In June they unveiled their new microcredit originator Zaimer and we learned that they are hiring nuclear physicists to optimise their successful algorithms.

They continue to break records with €10.6 million per month funded, +1,000 new investors and €185K paid in interest.

Here they add 1% of your investment if it exceeds €500 in the first month:

Viainvest has paid €35 in June and I have increased my portfolio by €350 to invest it in some long-term projects at 14% interest instead of the usual 12%.

In addition, on 29 June, they announced a new partnership with Atlan Advance Management to manage bridge loans through the financing of mortgage-backed real estate loans in Spain.

This new typology of projects will avoid the occasional lack of offers that they sometimes suffer.

In this banner you get €15 just by investing more than €50. Why are you waiting? With only 50€!

In June, Lendermarket provided me with €6, where I have 20 projects, 3 of which are behind schedule, although I have already seen that their Buyback is working perfectly.

They have just turned two years old and have announced that their annual accounts will be audited by KPMG. Big time!

They already have 2,600 investors who hold an average portfolio of €5,000 and have accumulated a volume of €106 million in funding.

The promotional campaign for new investors at 2% has ended, but the 1% promotion is still active:

Nibble has returned €3 in June and in July I will reinvest the interest of the last three months, setting in motion a snowball of profitability.

In testing since mid-April, expectations on this platform are high and so far it is performing perfectly.

It has a very simple usability and I like its evaluation system based on three pillars: probability of delay, probability of fraud and degree of loyalty.

Be sure to take a look here for some introductory information I have prepared on their platform.

In mid-May I invested €300 in Esketit to try it out and, although it is too early to draw any conclusions, I can tell you how well it performs.

With thirteen investments made, two of them in business and eleven in short-term loans, I already have a proven return of 14.03%.

Interesting also because it is based in Ireland, thus avoiding the concentration of Baltic platforms, it has reached €3M in funded loans.

In July I will publish a more detailed publication with more statistics, results and general impressions.

Bondster has rented €4 in June and comes with good news. Originator Kviku has achieved €1.6 million in profit and Bondster has added two new ones: NordCard and SmartAdvance South Africa.

From 1 July they will have a secondary market with a 0.5% commission to the seller, with no fee for the buyer.

This tool will increase liquidity, although I don’t think I will use it because my projects are short term and its Buyback works perfectly.

In addition, until 31 August, they are offering 1% of the investment to each new affiliate and an additional €5 bonus:

Platform with some shadows

Iuvo is not convincing me and has generated €1 again this month, despite investing in roubles with Kviku at almost 20%.

I have already seen that they have an inconvenient currency exchange rate, so I will give them until the end of July, when they will be 5 years old.

It is a very secure and highly rated platform, but its profitability is below my expectations.

In relation to its partners, Adwisers and NordCard have presented their audited annual accounts, while Ibancar has completed two years in Iuvo.

The new originator Access Finance with a 9% yield, risk category A and 30% skin-in-the-game has been launched.

Shunning these platforms

This month Housers has fulfilled the first payment of €517 committed for the Albufera III project. I expect that in July the payment of Torres de Paterna, both from the denounced developer Construbecker, will be added.

The court has admitted the complaint for a fraud offence and several parties involved on both sides, Housers and Construbecker, have been summoned to testify.

The total amount is €6.3 million for the projects Avenida del Puerto, Cardenal Benlloch, Albufera I, II and III, Tarragona, Torres de Paterna I and II, Eliana and Llanes.

Another court has ordered an investigation into the complaint filed against ByNok and Álvaro Luna, chairman of the board of directors of Housers, has already testified.

Things are not going well for them, that’s for sure. Based on last month’s data, we see here that investors are taking out more capital than they invest:

Another novelty is the inclusion of Bitcoin as a payment method in Housers through Cryptan.

My advice: don’t invest in Housers even with Monopoly tickets.

In Mintos I have reduced my portfolio by €114 and gained €5 in interest, thanks to the return of Akulaku. It is now up to Finko AM to follow suit, although they have already announced that they will return a maximum of 70% of the amount owed. I still do not advise investing in Mintos.

Already close to being licensed as brokers, they have introduced three categories of investors: retail, professional and eligible counterparties.

They have published their 2020 annual accounts audited by KPMG, which are less satisfactory than those for 2019.

In Lenndy they returned €13 in June, but I still have a long way to go until March 2024 to get rid of my entire portfolio. Last month I put the two assets up for sale at a 21% discount, but no one has been interested in them.

I am still very unhappy with Bulkestate. This month they came up with the idea of launching a project with the same return as usual (12%), for a term of 18 months, but with a minimum investment of €25,000.

And why invest in this project when there are others in which I can diversify and invest €50 at the same or a higher return and for a shorter term, even with monthly payments? Absurd.

Crowdestate still has no news on the Baltic Forest project, for which they owe me €284 and counting. It seems that the bankruptcy committee is taking it easy.

This month they have published 7 projects (none since 10/06) and we are still waiting for the publication of their annual accounts.

In the loss section, more than €2.5 million is irrecoverable and €7.1 million is in the hands of the courts.

Platforms denounced

Grupeer is not getting off the ground. This month it has been confirmed that the Latvian National Police has launched a criminal investigation and the person responsible is Commissioner Ervins Ambrozis, who can be contacted by those affected by this email: ervins.ambrozis@vp.gov.lv

It is also possible to join the Armada Group through their website. They have not published any posts on their blog since 31 March.

The curious thing is that on 16 June they presented the accounting books for the last three years (2018-2020) of one of the group’s companies, in which its administrator is Mr. Kisiks Andrejs.

Wisefund has defended its position and the judge has not yielded to the creditors’ meeting. In any case, the Spanish Judicial Police have informed me that they have found evidence of pyramid activity.

There is little time left to bring in the full cavalry against Monethera and there is evidence of cross financial movements with Envestio. In late summer there could be pleasant surprises.

Yesterday, 30 June, the defence of the claims against Envestio took place, but there is no public information about it. There will be further developments at the end of July.

The hearing against Kuetzal was held on the same day. It appears that the network is being extended to Colombia and one of its financial institutions. In Russia, a lawsuit has already been filed in the relevant courts.

contained optimism

It has been a month of restrained optimism, because both Crowdestor and Housers could have given me good news.

They have been fulfilled with Crowdestor and with Housers I am waiting for the first interest payment approved at the Shareholders’ Meeting, because I do not trust them.

Here are my results for the month, with €388 in interest earned:

Peerberry has brought great news, all of it welcome: I have been paid €38 in interest, the Taikos real estate project has been repaid at 14.4%, the originator Credit Plus UA has presented the audit with its excellent 2020 results and the Polish companies of the Aventus Group raised €2.55 million. of net profit last year.

Viainvest appears to have subscribed to the €7 monthly return, financing €4 million this month and resolving some periods without new projects. 

This month Robocash has returned “only” €44 as I have started investing in projects between 90-180 days because I have enormous confidence in them.

I have nothing but good things to say about them and they are becoming giants. They will soon launch $5 million in bonds in Singapore to launch their online bank in Southeast Asia, no less. 

In May Crowdestor woke up and made a partial repayment of the Forestland Investments project, for which they also made a special payment.

In addition, he has paid interest on four more projects and has given me €284 in interest.

I have sold the Mafia Stars project and keep 14 projects, half of which I have put up for sale at the same price as they were acquired.

Bondster has announced that it will launch its secondary market in July. In the meantime, they have given me another €4 in May and are continuing their usual line of work, paying on time.

Lendermarket continues to delight me, even though this month it has only yielded me €5. It is very regular in its payments and this month has exceeded €100 million financed.

With regard to Iuvo, it continues to evolve slowly but surely.

I have noticed that they do a currency exchange rate that is not very advantageous for the buyer, so in June I will look into rouble investments, which yield almost 20% per annum.

Mintos has let me down for another month, paying €0 of the €960 in recovery. In December 2021 I am supposed to get the €89 from Akulaku back, but Finko continues his zero payout line. 

This month its originators have published their annual results, Mintos has reached 400,000 registered users, originators Acema and Swiss Capital have stopped working with them and E-cash has been suspended with an outstanding debt of €407,000.

Bulkestate still has no news on the Amalijas Street project, which has been extended from 12 months to 24 months. Let’s hope it will be sooner, because they have already launched the 4th financing of this project. 

Crowdestate already owes me €211 in arrears from the Baltic Forest project and this month announced that 76 claims totalling almost €34 million are under review by the Bankruptcy Committee.  

In May, 8 new projects were launched and 2 entered the list of defaulters, making a total of 31 projects with a total of more than €8.5 million that are not known to be recovered.

In April I invested €300 in the Nibble platform after studying it for several months and I am VERY happy with them, as it has brought me a 14.5% return, they are transparent and have an excellent support service.

Below is a sample and here I show you more details:

In May I also invested another 300€ in the new Esketit platform and as it is very new, although I have been looking for it for some time, I will give you just a sample.

I will give you more details in June:

In Lenndy they have published the payment schedule for the projects with Buyback defaulted and will end in March 2024.

So I have taken the decision to put my two assets up for sale at a 21% discount on the purchase price.  

And what can I say about Housers? Well, they have behaved as usual: ZERO interest payments on the more than €100,000 invested.

On 31 May, the interest in the Albufera III project should have been transferred from the accused developer Construbecker to Housers. Will they arrive?

In May something fantastic happened and that is that the investors have taken control of the Via Augusta project, leaving aside the terrible management of the administrator and Housers. Well done, fellow sufferers!

And in June, the long-awaited class action lawsuit will be filed against Housers and all those involved in the scheme.

There are a total of 60 projects and you can participate as claimants and some even include loans already repaid, since the origin of the operations is illegal.

I am running against two: Ríos Rosas and Iriarte. All loan operations, except “Secundino Hernandez”, have in common the use of investors’ money for the purchase, refurbishment and sale of a real estate asset within 12 months (short-term investment transactions), or the purchase of the asset for rental and subsequent resale in the long term (savings operations).

If you want to participate in the class action, you can write to me at info@libertad-financiera.eu

Problematic platforms

The ones we prefer not to talk about are the ones we have learned the most about. Let’s go to them:

Grupeer has still not given any sign of life. The Armada Group has activated this page to join the lawsuit against them. 

The law firm Ellex Klavins is still trying to get Grupeer to file for bankruptcy, but it has not happened yet.

From Wisefund there are many new developments, but the main one is that the judicial police in each country are calling all those affected in Europe to corroborate and declare to the authorities their status as investors. Among them, myself.

This has happened because Magnusson’s law firm has filed a civil rather than a criminal lawsuit and Wisefund has avoided bankruptcy.

This is apparently Wisefund’s third victory in court. We will see what happens in this decisive month of June.

The case against Monethera is yielding results and data is being compiled to resume legal proceedings.

On the other hand, evidence has been received showing the connection between the Envestio, Kuetzal and Monethera frauds. Surprised?

In reference to Kuetzal, pressure is being put on the alleged perpetrators Victoria Gortsak and Alberts Cevers and they have taken a defensive position.

The case extends to Hungary, Bulgaria and Russia, where significant progress is being made.

The Envestio case appears to be well advanced and an auditor has even been hired to carry out a thorough analysis of the current situation.

I cannot give more details, but I am very optimistic despite the difficulty and the time it will take me to recover the first euro.

One step forward and half a step back

My portfolio update: April 2021

This sentence defines the month of April: one step forward and half a step back, because the €258 return is somewhat disappointing.

And the disappointments are Housers, which is usual with a few exceptions, and Crowdestor, which in April brought in a measly 14 euros.

Fortunately Peerberry, Robocash and Lendermarket continue to do their job perfectly and give me nothing but joy.

This month I can’t blog much more due to time constraints, but here’s a summary of the main news from each platform:

Mintos continues to show its appalling management in the recovery of overdue loans, which this month accounted for €1.32 of the €960 outstanding.

Hopefully, the end of moratoriums in several countries will help to accelerate this process.

This month the Mexican originator Swell (up to 11% interest, 36 month periods, skin in the game of 10% and Buyback) has joined.

Mikro Kapitalhas also expanded its portfolio to Uzbekistan (up to 11% annual return, 23 months duration, skin in the game of 10% and Buyback), while E-Cash has been suspended.

DelfinGroup plans its IPO on the Latvian stock exchange in 2021 and maintains €13 million financed in Mintos.

Mintos has published a 44% growth in financed volume in the last 6 months compared to the previous 6 months.

Peerberry continues to outperform and has published its excellent first quarter results (€102 million portfolio vs. €60 million in 2020, €31 million over €23 million in 2020, doubled the number of employees in one year, etc.).

In addition, this month I set an all-time record with them by generating €81 in interest.

It plans to expand its market to Kenya, India and Romania, to expand its development in the real estate sector and in factoring.

This month they have improved their mobile app for Android, while it will take a few more weeks for iOS.

Viainvest has expanded into the Philippines under the banner of Vamo Lending Inc. with a 12% return, no Buyback and the possibility of early exit at one, three or six months’ notice.

On the other hand, they are going to stop issuing new projects in Spain under the VIA SMS Group brand.

They continue to suffer from a lack of projects on occasion, although they have recovered from their worst initial months this year.

With regard to Robocash, I can only confirm that I am still very satisfied with the €57 generated.

They have beaten their own forecasts and published their audited annual accounts by FBK Grant Thornton, which corroborate their excellent results: USD 24 million net profit and a 58% increase in the value of the group compared to the previous year.

As previously announced, Tez Finance has been replaced by LLP MFO Robocash.kz

The first big disappointment of the month arrives: Crowdestor has contributed €14 with 75% of its projects in arrears, few or late explanations and future promises of payment.

Below is a picture of my dashboard.

In April they have launched 7 new projects with a total volume of €835,000 and 530 new investors have registered. In March there were 12 projects, €1.6 million and 620 new users. Change of cycle?

They have published the results of the questionnaire which shows that 44% of investors are satisfied with the platform and that the greatest dissatisfaction comes from delays in payments.

Finally, in April they have changed their FAQ section and the secondary market is very active with new unforeseen delays.

Lenndy has refunded virtually none of the Buyback management monies and has re-announced that they will no longer issue projects under this guarantee.

As a result, its secondary market is buzzing with projects for sale and few purchases.

As I said last month, I am very unhappy with Bulkestate. The project in which I had invested for 12 months and which ended in March, will be delayed for another year.

Needless to say,I do not recommend investing in this platform until they catch up with payments on the many projects in arrears.

Bondster has brought some news in April: originator Stikcredit has published its 47% increase in sales in 2020.

On the other hand, the Bulgarian originator ITF has increased its interest rate from 10 to 11.5%.

I am pleased to learn about the situation of the originators in the process of restructuring thanks to the informative emails that they send openly, without any hint of secrecy.

The great joy of the month, along with Peerberry, was provided by Lendermarket, which contributed €84 in profitability between interest and bonus.

The first quarter results of its parent group – Creditstar Group – have been published, with a net profit of €1.7 million.

They have set aside €1.5 million for possible defaults on Covid, have launched the company Monefit in Finland and will launch new bonds worth €8 million in June.

Iuvo continues to go from strength to strength and this is the fourth month that I have made €1 profit.

The originator in which I invest in roubles, Kviku, has published its excellent audited results for last year (+40% gross profit).

iCredit Romania has also generated €1.36 million in gross profit in 2020 and already has 1,400 employees in 103 offices.

It is also a joy to know that they have started the process to become a regulated company under strict European guidelines in the P2P market.

Crowdestate has not provided any profitability for more than a year and they have not provided any news in the bankruptcy process of the company where I have invested €2,600.

They maintain €11.8 million owed for delays and €1.9 million irrecoverable from four projects.

The usual disappointment called Housers has avoided paying out this month on any of the nine active projects.

For the time being, the new class action lawsuit that was to be filed against Housers for 33 projects has been delayed because the lawsuit will be extended to more than 60 projects. I will report to you shortly on its implementation.

But the collective criminal complaint for alleged fraud and embezzlement against Housers and ByNok has already been admitted for processing, and the founders of the company are due to testify on 27 May.

Any investor in the ByNok projects (Boladilla Village and Hills, ByNok, Mediterranean Hills and Bond Hills) can join the lawsuit by contacting the lawyer Manuel C. Merino: manuelm.ab@gmail.com

Housers published on 8 April that it has closed a capital increase round of half a million euros and intends to raise a further 4 million euros next summer.

In addition, founding partner Antonio Brusola has agreed to leave Housers after 3 years of conflict.

There are still two very active groups to keep up to date: https://t.me/housers_foro and https://t.me/housersCom

We have not received anything this month either from the defendants Grupeer and Wisefund.

Neither has issued any statement and there is no news about them.

In reference to Envestio, a possible agreement with the debtor Spade has been extended this month.

New material has emerged implicating Cevers for misappropriation in the Kuetzal case.

Sensitive information has also been requested from a major bank to trace the origin of several transfers.

In addition, a bankruptcy petition has been filed in Central Europe, and there could be developments in the Russian bankruptcy office next month.

Finally, there have been a number of developments against Monethera and some of its debtor companies.

In addition, a criminal complaint has been filed against a former manager of the company for misappropriation.

Here’s the current status of my investments:

You already know that you can see the screenshot of each platform, the profitability tables, latest news and the summary of each one in each “Crowdlending” tab or here. 


Record-breaking month

My portfolio update: March 2021

Yes, a month of records. March surpassed the highest return achieved in December 2019 with a magical sum: €2,297.

And, incredible as it may seem, this month Housers has returned €2,055 of four months of delays in the Albufera III project. That said, we may not see a euro for months, which is the usual scenario.

I don’t know if it has anything to do with the complaint that I ratified this month before the Madrid Courts against Housers and the Albufera III developer, but it seems a pleasant coincidence.

March has brought a lot of news about Housers, which you can read below.

In reference to Peerberry, this month it has continued to give me joy, as it has brought me €69 between interest and bonus, a new profitability record on this platform.

In addition, this month they have launched their mobile app, closed their first real estate project, and continue to increase their financed volume, number of investors, etc. every month.

Robo.cash has been another tremendous success, because I have reached the bronze category (over €5,000 invested) which entitles me to an additional 0.3% interest, earning me €61.

They have several new developments: this year they will open a market in Sri Lanka and are creating a digital bank. The 2020 audit will be presented around May-June.

Crowdestor has disappointed me this month because of continued delays and non-payments and professional miscommunication, despite having received €90 in interest.

In March they reached €50 million in funding, Artur Geisari (head of SME) has left the company and they have launched Crowdestor Club for those with investments over €75,000.

They have just announced a new procedure for the collection of every overdue or unpaid project. You can see it here.

I also give a positive to Bondster, which this month has paid €10 in interest, introduced its new CEO (Pavel Klema), has new originator (Autofino) and received excellent feedback from P2Pinvesting.it and Capital Insider.

Viainvest continues to hold its own and has suffered less fallow this month, paying €8 in interest.

Iuvo has also complied and since this month I am “testing” rouble investments with an interest rate above 19%. All projects are up to date and are made in the well-known originator Kviku.

Lendermarket continues to run its course and with the expected profitability, without surprises.

On the other side of the coin is Lenndy, which this month invented a way to make the backlog of projects disappear by moving them into one portfolio for First Finance projects and another for Giantus projects.

I was also disappointed by Bulkestate, from which I expected the return of the project invested a year ago and which will be delayed for a few months. We were not informed until the expiry date. Painful communication.

Mintos, which has refunded me 10€ of the overdue amount, was not to be missed. A lot of marketing and inefficient collection management, with €961 (all my capital) in the process of recovery. Another one I don’t recommend.

Crowdestate has still not contributed a single euro for more than a year. There have also been no developments in the bankruptcy proceedings of the company in which I have invested my capital.

They remain €11.8 million in arrears and €1.9 million unrecoverable from four projects.

This month we have also received nothing from the reported fraudsters Grupeer and Wisefund, whose news I publish below, along with the confirmed fraudsters Envestio, Kuetzal and Monethera.

Here’s the current status of my investments:

This month ESMA (European Securities and Markets Authority) has introduced a technical consultation affecting Crowdfunding service providers for investor protection based on the ECSPR (European Crowdfunding Service Providers Regulation).

They should get a response before the end of May, so the long-awaited regulation that will mark the potential future of Crowdfunding is coming.

Month of overcoming

european crowdlending investments

My portfolio update: February 2021

Yes, a month of overcoming. February has outperformed January: €402 profitability with €28,600 invested in European platforms, because the only Spanish platform – Housers – has failed to meet its payment commitment for the fourth consecutive month.

In January I reported Housers and the developer Construbecker to the Madrid courts and on 10 March I have to ratify the complaint.

Here are the details of the current state of investments:

Mintos has returned €10 this month out of the €971 in the process of recovery and I no longer have anything invested. They have incorporated more information on historical performance, among other new features.  

Peerberry continues to deliver excellent news and generate enormous confidence. They have published a new Real Estate project in Vilnius at 10%. They continue to have no defaults since their inception in 2017.  

Viainvest is still suffering from the lack of publication of projects since December, so I have withdrawn €68, but they are keeping their payment commitments. 

I continue to be very happy with Robo.cash and the 44€ generated will be increased in March since I will reach 5,000€ invested, which carries a 0.3% more profitability. 

Crowdestor has performed better in February, generated €315 in interest and met almost all of its commitments, although others are experiencing delays and communication is not going smoothly.

In Lenndy I have withdrawn €179 in February, the projects are all still behind schedule and I will continue to withdraw until they resolve the current lack of confidence. First Finance is still suspended. 

From 2 February, they have a secondary market to sell those projects that do not convince you. Maybe all of them?

Bondster has returned €10 in February, but I continue to withdraw slowly and intend to keep a small portfolio of €300 until they stabilise.

Although they suffer many delays, they apply their 60-day Buyback on time.

Lendermarket gave me a pleasant surprise in February with an extra €3 in bonuses, which added to the €3 interest, makes it the third most profitable platform. 

In contrast, Iuvo has only offered a meagre euro of interest, also due to the fact that almost all projects are behind schedule. But I’m not worried, because they’re applying their Buyback on time. 

Nothing has been heard from Wisefund after funding two projects in January, apart from the class action lawsuitfiled against them. If you want to sue, below I give you the details of when and how to do it. 

There have been no new developments in Bulkestate, but in March my project ends and I will take the opportunity to reinvest part of the capital also in its competitors: Evoestate and Estateguru.

In February Crowdestate published 8 new projects, but they still don’t show me confidence. Currently, they have €11.8 million owed for delays and 1.9 unrecoverable for four projects. 

With reference to my three projects, I hope that a buyer will acquire Baltic Forest’sassets, because the bankruptcy process is very slow. 

Grupeer is fighting against everyone to defend his lousy management: investors, plaintiff law firm (Ellex Klavins) and originators.

Nobody knows what Grupeer’s next move is, but for the time being everything seems to be settled in the Latvian courts.

More information on the class action and how to join the waiting list is available below. 

For the fourth consecutive month, Housers has once again failed to meet its payment commitment on several projects and others have not been paid for years. 

In March I have to ratify in court the complaint against them and Construbecker for the €70,000 of capital owed plus interest on two projects. 

In legal terms, Housers continues to accumulate problems:

  • the lawsuit against the developer of the Santa Eulalia project has been ratified
  • Court response awaited in the lawsuit against Antonio Brusola for unfair administration
  • notice of civil lawsuit against Housers remains pending
  • filed criminal complaint for qualified scam against ByNok for five projects

The gains against Envestio, Kuetzal and Monethera have been significant, as you can see below.

Month of little joy

Updating my portfolio: January 2021

Yes, a month of little joy. January is usually a very irregular month and this year has been no exception. 

Despite this, I sign another 367 euros of profitability from just over 27,000 euros invested in some European platforms, because the only Spaniard – Housers – has defaulted on its payment commitments for the third consecutive month. 

This month I decided to report Housers and promoter Construbecker to the Courts of Madrid, so I had to advance to the law firm an amount that I have been able to meet between the emergency fund and the withdrawal on several platforms.

Here are the details of the current state of investments:

Mintos gave me back 2 euros this month of the 981 euros in the process of recovery and I only have 1€ invested. They have updated their Risk Scores, which you can see below. 

At Peerberry I have increased my portfolio because they continue to give me enormous confidence. In 2020 they increased their portfolio by almost 46% compared to the previous year and remain unpaid since its inception in 2017.

Viainvest is suffering from the lack of publication of projects, but continues to evolve with firm pace and has been able to generate 8 euros this month. 

I continue to be very happy with Robo.cash and this month has rented 103 euros for the December promotional campaign and several project returns in Singapore.

Crowdestor has half-fulfilled this month. Despite having paid 231euros in interest, there are project management that continues to be delayed: Wholesale Food Trade (payment commitment at the end of 2020), Mafia Stars (delay in its full payment of capital), Kabuki (waiting for a vote from the first week of January), among others. 

Wisefund launched in December a new project – Mobile Ads Operations – which today has reached 48% funding, but in January it has launched another one that has already been funded –App Acquiring Venture -. 

Investors are still behaving badly. I remain unanswered to an email sent on January 25 regarding the lack of news since last July of the Dutch Flower Exporter project:

In Lenndy I stopped the autoinvest on December 29 because they hardly launch projects and the ones I have are all behind. My intention is to keep removing everything invested until I stop hearing noise from this platform. 

For the time being, the First Finance operator remains suspended. Let’s hope they meet their commitments on the projects already funded, because I have almost half of them. The good thing is that everyone has a vehicle as collateral. 

In addition, from 1 February they will have a secondary market in which projects of this operator can be sold. 

IUVO and Lendermarket have reached one month and the result is being adequate, without great joy or disappointment. Both already have some delays, so I’ll be able to check the operation of their Buyback. I’ll tell you more details below.

At Bondster I have obtained 9 euros this month and it is still the platform that offers the most profitability, however I will reduce my portfolio.  

Reasons? Since January 1, its CEO has left management and since March 1 its conditions will change, in which users will not be notified of new changes in their contractual terms. None of them I like.

In addition, with the money I withdraw from Bondster I will start investing in two new platforms that I am studying in detail: Estateguru and Evoestate.

In relation to Crowdestate nothing has changed:they still do not pay interest, return capital or update their latest news published in December, announcing that a bankruptcy committee had been assigned for the Baltic Forest project that would already inform us on some date not defined. 

Grupeer seems to have disappeared from the map since early November and from the Telegram group it’s all assumptions. 

On the other hand, Bulkestate continues to comply and in January they have published three projects with lower profitability that are financed in a few hours thanks to their stalwart.

Once again, Housers has disappointed its thousands of investors/affected in a month in which they have not paid a single euro. Therefore, a few days ago I filed a complaint against them and the promoter for the 70,000 euros that I have invested in two projects, although I know that a total of ten have been reported. 

More and more of you affected by this platform have contacted me from all over Europe, mainly Italy, Portugal and Spain, where the projects are located. This month we have had some news that I share with you below.  

In reference to Envestio, Kuetzal and Monethera it seems that good news arrives, some of which I explain later.

Continue reading “Month of little joy”

My portfolio update: December 2020

Month of satisfaction and disappointment (say Housers)

That’s it, month of satisfaction (Crowdestor and Robo.cash) and disappointments (Housers and Mintos), because December has been less profitable than October and November, mainly because Housers has ignored its payment obligations and has contributed nothing to the 636€ generated this month by the rest of the platforms. 

Below you can see the profitability of each one in detail:

Mintos has been a disappointment for another month, but I have paid back 39 euros and I am below the 1000 euros invested. At this rate I will forget about Mintos in two years. I now have only 6.5% invested (60 euros), as the rest (920 euros) is still in the process of recovery. 

Peerberry remains constant, maintaining a high number of available projects which last month reached the milestone of EUR 22.3 million funded.

Another 9 Euros were given to me by Viainvest in December, which continues to consolidate as a safe and smooth bet. 

This month, Robo.cash was the main attraction, contributing 286 euros in interest thanks to the investment campaign in projects in Singapore, which gave me 226 euros. 

As usual in Crowdestor, they have had a month with lights and shadows. The lights: the Mafia Stars project has made an advance of 21% on the capital to be delivered on 6 January and the Saapio project has been brought up to date with payments.

The shadows: five projects are more than 90 days overdue, although we have a commitment to pay for one of them (Forestland Investments) from January, another without news since early November (Inch2) despite the publication by Crowdestor and, as a novelty, I have acquired in the secondary market the project Wholesale Food Trade with an amount of 34€ to try.

In spite of this, this month they have contributed 320 euros very welcome. Furthermore, they have launched a vote to accept or not the proposal of the promoter of the Consumer Loan Portfolio Acquisition project, which seemed to be a joke.  

Regarding Wisefund, they have surprised the market by launching a new projectwhen we all anticipated the probable end of the platform. Last attempts? It should be remembered that they are unprincipled people who have not informed their investors for months and do not provide a solution to their short-term defaults.

In Lenndy I have stopped the autoinvest since December 29th because they hardly launch any projects and I have 35 out of 38 projects delayed.In addition, new investors will not be able to registeruntil mid-January, so I have deleted the bonus link to avoid any inconvenience. December has contributed only 4 euros, when previously it was no less than 10 euros a month.

This month I sold my scarce Swaper portfolio, as they could hardly publish any projects. It has been an 11-month test that has not convinced me and I will not return to them until they increase their available projects. 

On the other hand, for almost a year now I have been following Iuvo and Lendermarket, in which I have started to invest at the end of December with small amounts to see their evolution and test them. Below and in the Crowdlending section I leave you more details. 

Bondster has given me €13 in December, which I hope will continue to work in the same way: high profitability, immediate returns and strict application of the Buyback. 

This month, the developer of the Baltic Forest project, whose first meeting of creditorswas held on December 21, has been declared bankrupt. Crowdestate has informed that a bankruptcy committee has been appointed, which will have to analyse the situation and make claims on behalf of the debtors. 

Grupeer published their latest news on the blog at the beginning of November, which I don’t know if it’s good news, and Bulkestate continues at their pace, slowly but surely, working quite well, even though they have only published two projects this month that have celebrated their 4th anniversary.

As a disappointment, Housers has not ceased to surprise us with a new lack of payment, in which they have failed to comply with the agreementwe reached three months ago on the Albufera III and Torres de Paterna projects and of which they only paid for the first month.

They did the same in the previous agreement, signed more than a year ago, so they are fooling investors again. How long will the CNMV (National Securities Market Commission), allow Housers to do this?

The President of the Association of People Affected by Housers has published a table with ALL the delayed projects and they are MANY. You will be amazed… Here you can see it in detail. 

Finally, on Envestio there have been some new developments, while Kuetzal and Monethera have hardly changed from last month. You can see them all below.

And here are the details of each platform:

Updating my portfolio: November 2020

Month of joy and hope

That’s right, month of joy and hope. So it was November: a good month with 967 euros obtained from interest,but with two sides. The joy represented by Crowdestor and the hope that Housers would fulfill his commitments.

In short, both Housers   and   Crowdestor some outstanding   payments have been left along the way, although the former I have little confidence.

The commitment made according to the payment schedule proposed by Housers lasted one month, so we are returning to the usual pattern of delays in payments. 

Mintos continues to disappoint in its figures, as its profitability has been a few cents, since I have only invested 10%of my funds, since the remaining 90% is in the process of recovery. 

Peerberry   hascontributed the same 4th last month and   it still works well. They transfer confidence in their parent company Aventus Group in Poland, despite pandemic regulations.

Viainvest has contributed this month with 9€ who know me to glory. Its parent company VIA SMS Group has submitted its excellent consolidated reports for 2019, with a net profit of almost 400,000 euros.

Robo.cash   surprised me this month with 31€ profit and continues to offer its usual stability. Now that you have completed a project in Crowdestor and taking advantage of the additional 1% that you offer until December 10, I will reinvest the entire amount in them.   More information here.

Crowdestor’s had a irregular month. On the one hand, I have been returned to the entire Minst 19 project with 13.4% interest meeting the date. But, on the other hand, seven projects accumulate with delay,some more than three months: Kabuki at Salaris, Foresland and Fertilizer Export. In the first two, news was expected at the end of November that have not arrived.

In any case, it has contributed 162 euros that are very welcome and have continued to inform investors conveniently about the situation of each project. 

Lenndy has contributed 11 euros in November and I remain confident in his good work to maintain a very diversified portfolio   .

For its part, Bondster has helped me with another 11€ and I removed Rapicredit from my Autoinvest because I was accumulating many projects of this originator and I want to diversify. On the other hand, www.todocrowdlending.com appear in the TOP 3 of more profitable platforms. 

Bulkestate   has slowed the pace this month and has published only three projects, but it still offers enormous security and is corroborated by its stalwart investors.

At Swaper I am   very unhappy with their   severing of projects and I have only one euro invested that I will repay in mid-December along with the rest of the balance, when the last project is over.

Crowdestate has been personed to find out the details of Baltic Forest’s bankruptcy petition. In short, they are looking for a buyer urgently, but they convey a certain peace of mind by ensuring that they have the necessary guarantees. The 2,600 euros invested are already 8 months behind schedule and, according to their own forecasts, there are still 73 months to go. 

Grupeer   has published the legal actions it will take against originators who are not fulfilling their existing contracts, continues to manage the collections of 10 million euros through Recollecta and announce that they are still interested in continuing their company.

Finally, after several emails,   Wisefund has informed me that action is being taken to recover the unpaid amounts from the Dutch Flowers project through the company Cis Debt Recovery Solutions, but they do not know how long this will take and the amount to be recovered. It is possible to sue them, but this has not been confirmed to date. 

In relation to Housers, there is good news and bad news, since they have paid everything corresponding to the payment schedule of the Marismas de Odiel project, while in Torres de Paterna and Albufera III they paid only in October and already have missed their second month. Housers informed me that they will try to enforce the promoter’s payment of two months before Christmas, but their confidence is also minimal. 

They have also reactivated the paymentsof Pensamiento and Juan de la Encina, which since March and December were not paying interest despite being both rented. Below is the status of all the projects. 

The platform of those affected by Housers’ non-payment is very active and a few days ago dozens of documents were presented before the National Court accrediting Housers’ lack of contractual compliance.

Finally, about Kuetzal, Monethera and Envestio there have been some news that you can read at the end of this post. 

Here’s the table with the percentages and returns for each platform this month:

And here’s what’s new in the detail of each platform:

Mintos (extended version)

Although their results in my case are not satisfactory, they continue to have a loyal legion of followers who have full confidence in them, having reached 7.2 million euros in their self-crowdfunding campaign with more than 7,000 investors.

With regard to the outstanding payments, I am enclosing a screenshot of my current situation:

It seems that Finko Armenia, where I have the bulk of my investments in recovery, could pay back all the amounts until December 2022. For the time being, this last month they have returned 120,000 Euros out of the total of 17 million that are still pending, as you can see below:

It seems that Capital Service and Express Credit will be the hardest to charge. What I most reproach Mintos for is that, until the moment when the platforms I invested in failed, they had been rated between A- and B.

Mintos now has the new Mexican originator “Podemos Progresar”, which offers returns of up to 12%.
