I think that you can think about your design.
What happens if your service tend to grow to millions of users?

You maybe think to have organized these users regionally for example, 
and on that way you can
have less documents entries in your databases.

For example:
- DB 1: All U.S users
- DB 2: All European Users
- DB 2: All Indian Users
- DB 4: All Chinese Users

Remember, It's a suggestion.
