Welcome to another edition of our investor stories series. In today’s story we interview Eduardo, a Spanish national who, after paying off his Bondora loan early, decided he wanted to become the lender and started investing with us.

Bondora borrower and investor Eduardo

“I started asking for a loan with Bondora… I wanted to reverse the situation and it was me who would lend and not ask for a loan.”

Tell us a bit about yourself?

My name is Eduardo, I am Spanish, from the city of Burgos. I am a technical analyst and computer support professional. I like to travel, cinema, football, and to invest.

What made you start investing with Bondora?

I started asking for a loan with Bondora on Google, which I already paid in advance. I saw the potential of Bondora, and I wanted to reverse the situation and so it was me who would lend and not ask for a loan.

“I have been doing this for 2 years now”

What were your investment goals when you started and how is your portfolio doing now?

I wanted to start small, with €600 per month. In a year I liked the results and I followed with €800 per month and a few months later, €1000 per month … I have been doing this for 2 years now.

What features/strategy do you use and how does it work for you?

I use Portfolio Manager, Portfolio Pro following my strategy of what loans and how much to invest.
Sometimes Secondary Market. In the past I did all manual, and bought in the secondary market to compensate.

It is very difficult to have more losses than income, and you can always start slowly and lose the fear.

If you could give any advice to someone starting out with Bondora, what would it be?

My advice is to act with your head and follow a method without leaving room for emotions or for quantities of more. This should only be a second source of income and hobby. It is very difficult to have more losses than income, and you can always start slowly and lose the fear.
