Seeds of Change: The Impactful Journeyof Borish Namen and Patricia Hivo

Participants of V-Lab’s GROW program.


Meet Patricia and Borish, the dynamic duo behind “End blo Road Farm.” Participants in
V-Labs GROW Program, they embarked on a journey to transform their passion for farming
into a thriving business, and their story is truly inspiring! Their Venture is more than a farm
to doorstep initiative; it’s a testament to the power of passion, education and community

From Vision to Reality

Patricia and Borish joined the V-LAB GROW program as business partners with a shared vision that goes beyond providing fresh produce; they sought to alleviate the daily challenges faced by working parents and families in Vanuatu to provide the convenience of fresh, farm-to-doorstep vegetable and root crop deliveries. They recognized the daily struggles of juggling work and grocery shopping and wanted to make life easier for their community. By joining the V-Lab GROW program, they laid the foundation for a venture that brings the convenience of farm-fresh vegetables and root crops directly to the doorsteps of those who need it most.

Empowered by GROW

Before entering the GROW program, Patricia and Borish had limited knowledge of business management.
The V-Lab GROW program became the catalyst for Patricia and Borish’s journey from aspiring
entrepreneurs to confident business leaders. With limited prior knowledge of business management,
they eagerly embraced the program’s training and mentorship opportunities. GROW empowered them to”think outside the box” and provided insights into effective business strategies, transforming their initial
vision into a well-rounded and sustainable business model.

Achieving Milestones

Patricia and Borish proudly share their recent milestones, showcasing the tangible impact of their dedication and the support received through the GROW program. The launch of their brand-new Facebook page, “End blo Road Farm,” marked a significant step in reaching a broader audience and showcasing the diverse array of farm-fresh products they offer. Additionally, the acquisition
of a state-of-the-art rotovator machine, made possible with GROW’s support, promises to enhance their farming efficiency, further solidifying their commitment to excellence.

The journey of Patricia and Borish is more than a personal success story; it is a beacon of hope for those aspiring to turn their passion into a thriving business. Their commitment to continuous learning, coupled with the unwavering support of the GROW program and their community, showcases the transformative power of collaboration and dedication.
