One of the amazing ways how to gain an extra passive income, is to start investing, but don’t be afraid, it doesn’t have to be really difficult. Let’s start with P2P / P2B investing (crowd-lending)!
“Crowdfunding allows projects be financed directly by a large group of people, the “crowd”, without resorting to the services of a traditional bank or other financial institution.”
“In crowdlending, a large number of unrelated people lend directly small amounts in exchange for a financial return, through a commercial loan agreement.”
P2P = Peer to Peer (“This form of crowdlending enables people to lend their money to other individuals, matching borrowers and lenders directly. The loans issued often include many tiny slivers from different lenders.”)
P2B = Peer to Business (“It is a method of debt financing that enables individuals to lend money to enterprise projects of any scale—bypassing an official financial institution. Traditionally individuals didn’t get direct access to enterprise projects.”)
There are a lot of platforms which help you to start investing, using already pre-selected strategies, so you don’t have to have a lot of knowledge to start investing. However I recommend to spend some time before investing, learn a bit more about the system, new terms, take in account all the risks but also the opportunities. In the end, everything in life is risky, even having cash under the pillow 🙃
Let’s start to safely invest your money!
You can always double check on Trustpilot and other similar platforms so you avoid any scam, that’s VERY IMPORTANT 😌
Here is the list of my favorite platforms where to invest your money (some of them more easy to use, some of them more conservative, some of them more risky):
EstateGuru is a very attractive platform where I have started to invest during 2020 and I keep asking myself why I haven’t started earlier.
The average interest rate is maybe not that that high compared to other platforms, but also not that low either (depends which platforms you compare with:). The team behind is very professional and they seem to have much less problems during the Covid-19 pandemic, so I think it’s a great option for those, who want to choose something safer but still get some nice passive income.
The average interest rate is around 10-11 %, the platform is concentrated on real estate projects and the average period for one loan is just around 1 year, which is very nice, so you don’t have to wait too long for a project to be completed.
An auto invest option is available, for those who invest bigger amounts even with advanced options.
The secondary market is available (so far only with a manual option), the platform is taking a small fee to those who are selling their loans. Very soon it should be able to also set auto invest for secondary market as well.
Overall I am very pleased with this platform and I totally recommend it so far!
If you want to register, please be my guest and register through my welcome link – this way we both get a nice bonus! (or entry my referral code EGU41168 during the registration process)
One of the best know P2P platforms for all types of investors coming from Latvia!
Slightly damaged image after the Covid crisis, but hopefully getting back on track soon!
Very clear interface, fast registration, pretty high yield (average return over 12-13 % – most of them with Buyback guarantee!), but you can find even with 15 % and more if you don’t mind some extra risk, especially in other currencies than just EUR.
Overall, I still recommend using this site as the main P2P platform, not only for diversification of your investments, you can find a big variety of providers, in different currencies (mostly but not only in EUR) and also with the Auto Invest option or the Secondary market (shame that there is a new fee for selling loans, but that’s a current trend in other platforms as well)

One of the more controversial platforms, but with a very active and communicative team, very risky projects but incredible oppurtunity for those who don’t mind big risks, as it can also bring big rewards with a new bonus program and new auto invest option coming up soon!
- very high interest rates (15 – 24 % ❗️but currently even over 30 % – but be ready some projects will be delayed or even defaulted – so the real gain can be around the same level as the safer platforms (it’s difficult to predict though)
- BuyBack Crowdestor guarantee and fund, which is not so good currently but getting better
- interest starts to pay off once you invest your money even though the project is not funded yet (= If you made an investment before the campaign deadline, you will be rewarded with extra interest for those days)
- Even if the project is not successfully funded, you will still be paid the interest rate for the days between your investment and the deadline of the project fundraising campaign)
- Prime on security and transparency to make sure all of the investors can have the assurance that they are making the right decision.
- many new opportunities where to invest and they introduce the new ones in advance on your mail! (I love that 🙃 )
- minimum amount 50 eur per investment
- NEW SECONDARY MARKET (so far even without fees, needs some improvements, but very nice improvement)
- NEW layout and useful statistics about your investments
+ a brand new BONUS program if you register with my link!
1% for you + 1% for your friend = for 90 days
= earn extra 1% from the investments that you make.
Starting from the first investment, you will continually receive 1% for the next 90 days.
Finally an option from my home country (interesting even for international investors) – Bondster, Czech P2P platform where I have so far invested only in CZK and overall I am happy, for the diversification, even though the interest rates are a bit lower, especially in the CZK market.
That’s I think it’s a great opportunity for international investors to invest in EUR, it’s a great alternative to Mintos for example.
The EUR market is very attractive indeed, with loans offering up to 17 % interest and also with a buy back guarantee.
If you want to register with a bonus, here is a promo link: 🙂

Finally, if you are afraid that you don’t have “the big money” to invest at those platforms, don’t be afraid, at most platforms you can invest only from 10 eur per investment, so even if you have only 100 or 200 eur, you can slowly start to diversify the investments and slowly you will see that the money grows as a passive income 🙃
“Start small and dream big.” 😌
Also, if you are unhappy with your bank or if you are hesitating which bank to use for international transfers, I would like to recommend N26 online bank from Germany!
More about N26 in my separate article:
GOOD LUCK, HAPPY INVESTING AND BE CAREFUL BEFORE CHOOSING THE RIGHT PLATFORM!
There were many scams that looked very professional!
via Envestio case, Kuetzal case, Monethera case and mostly Grupeer – the biggest disappointment among the P2P platforms
Stay well! ♥
