DID support for the Haitian financial cooperatives began in 1995. Over the years, this support has made it possible to increase the professionalism of the cooperatives, introduce technological innovations to meet the needs expressed by their members, design financial products that facilitate access to basic education and more recently, in 2007, set up the Le Levier federation. Following the January 12 earthquake, the Desjardins Group reaffirmed its support for its Haitian partners. A major fundraising campaign was organized among its current and retired directors and employees, and DID assured the Le Levier federation that it would continue to collaborate with the federation in its reconstruction efforts.
