Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

- The Robots.

#5 Grace Nyambura Wachira

Grace is from Kenya. I chose her because she is from Kenya, like my friend and coworker Grace, but also because of the entrepreneur group she is a part of.

Grace Nyambura Wachira

Grace is 35 years old and married with four children who are in school. She runs a retail shop where she sells auto spare parts to earn a living. She has been in the business for five years and has one employee. She was previously employed before she started this business. She has joined a group of young entrepreneurs in Faulu Kenya who are willing and determined to improve their lives. They meet on a weekly basis to save their money and later on the group guarantees its members a loan. She has requested a loan of Kes 40,000 from Faulu Kenya to add to her stock of spare parts. She hopes to grow her business and stabilize her income in the future.
