Développement international Desjardins’ (DID) collaboration with the Haitian financial cooperatives began in 1995. Over the years, these cooperatives have increased their professionalism, introduced technological innovations to meet the needs expressed by their members, designed financial products that facilitate access to basic education and more recently, in 2007, set up the Le Levier federation. Following the January 12, 2010 earthquake, the Le Levier federation of Haitian financial cooperatives became a key player in rebuilding Haiti. Desjardins Group then reaffirmed its intercooperation values towards its Haitian partners by organizing a major fundraising campaign among its current and retired directors and employees in order to support DID and the Le Levier federation in their reconstruction efforts.
