Let’s dive deeper into the numbers
Nothing positive to talk about, April was a gruelling month. I just hope that my e-shop’s revenue will not plummet hard in May when the restrictions are loosened.
My total passive income from investments since April 2018 to April 2020:
As things got even worse during April and the lockdown will be lengthened, I decided to sell and cash out more loans. Sold a total of 3160,23€ worth of loans and withdrawed 2263,87€ straight to my bank account.
My Mintos portfolio is now at 1930,71€ and in April my account, which generated me 44,69€ of interests.
As we all know, Kuetzal announced it’s shutting down on January 12th 2020. But just few days later on January 16th 2020, Envestio sent out a press release about “Envestio reacts to Kuetzal panic”. And as we again all already know, all of that was just BS. Envestio is also down and a scam just like Kuetzal was.
Is Envestio a scam? – Will another P2P platform bite the dust? – https://financefreedom.eu/is-envestio-a-scam-another-one-bites-the-dust/
My Envestio “interest income” in euros
As most or maybe even all of the projects at Envestio might’ve been fake, I don’t think that it’s wise for me to even consider “interest income” from the previous projects and just write off my initial investment of 500€.
Estateguru announced that they are raising funds on Seedrs – https://www.seedrs.com/estateguru

In June 2018, I decided to exit from Bondora. A year has gone by and I don’t even miss Bondora! It was the first platform I started investing in with just 10.1€ being the first deposit. Crazy right? It has served me well, even though I made lots of rookie mistakes, I am exiting with positive vibes. Farewell Bondora!
Exited from Bondora with a loss of 65,57€!
I do not recommend investing at Bondora, but if you still want to, be sure to read my Bondora review first!
The interest rates from Omaraha are steady, but due to the loss from sold loans the profit from Omaraha stays between 60-70€ usually.
Sadly, this time total profit from Omaraha accounts were 54,09€.
As mentioned in the December portfolio update. The EXIT from TWINO has been succesfull!
I have exited from TWINO with my 2 company accounts, which both had a total of 1000 euros invested over 3 years.

L account exited with a total profit of 186,73€.

In September 2018, I made a small investment of 500€ at Funderbeam into the company called Tanker Brewery.
In April 2020 my shares were worth 330€. My shares worth are still heavily impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Loss from Omaraha sold loas was 26,82€.
#1 Blog income: TargetCircle/CircleWise and Bonusway
In June I decided to put the blog income from affiliate/referral system and other side hustles incoome into the same graph, hence the numbers are a bit bigger now. This is the part where it gets interesting.
More detailed payout from TargetCircle/CircleWise:
I display two different incomes under the blog income. One is referral income from TargetCircle and the other one is affiliate income from Bonusway. Bonusway – I use it to save money while e-shopping or booking ONLINE. Read more at https://financefreedom.eu/save-money-when-e-shopping-or-booking-online/ A really simple way to save up money, especially on housing and from them random orders on AliExpress … (You know what I mean, we’ve all done it!) Considering this blog is mostly dedicated to finance and logging my pursuit on becoming financially free, the TargetCircle referral links usually earn me a lot more than Bonusway affiliate links or any other side hustle income.
#2 E-shop income
Had one big wholesale at the start of the month and then the regular trend continued, 847,7€ is my e-shop’s 2nd highest sales revenue of the year. I speculate that as May brings looser restrictions my e-shop revenue will plummet back to the regular 500€ per month.
April’s total revenue: 847,7€.
Shipping costs: 53,6€.
Total profit from sales: 209,28€.
E-shop sales in April:
Sadly, still no sales from Siteground, but I will keep on grinding.
