Most of the Incomparable team had never held a paintbrush before they joined the company and are now absolute masters of their brushes and justifiably proud of their work.
The ladies sense of belonging within the company and skills as crafters not only gives them tremendous pleasure but also working under Fair Trade policies provides them with economic empowerment and has uplifted their families.

Incomparable has helped me a lot. I am a breadwinner with 3 children aged 13, 4 and 1 year. I am the painting Supervisor. I love my job very much. Miss Jen (our boss who started the company) is like our family. All our problems are on her head and she tries always to help us.I hope my children can work for her one day. (Clementina)
My husband died and I have 5 children none of them are working except Gladys who also works with me at INCOMPARABLE. I support all of them myself. I have been working for Incomparable for 15 years now. They help me with loans sometimes and also to support my family. I never want to work anywhere else. (Martha)
