Luis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me reach business owners who can lose their business to ransomware and hackers.

Luis's story

Hola! My name is Luis and I've been working with computer systems for over 30 years. I founded The Critical Update in 2005 after several friends asked me for help cleaning viruses that had an expensive cleanup, only to get reinfected. I grew up in Mexico City but came back to my birthplace of El Paso in 1987. After graduating from UT El Paso, I got married to an amazing woman and we moved to Austin. We have been here ever since and our two children were born in the area. I am a connector and love building relationships, meeting people, and helping. I love collaborations that improve our community. I've been a member of the Hispanic Chamber for over 13 years and serve as a mentor in the Hispanic Austin Leadership program. I also have the privilege of serving in the food pantry every week. I am a very safe investment ;)
