In 1970, Desjardins Group created Développement international Desjardins (DID) giving it the objective of sharing the success of the Québec cooperative model with countries in the developing world. DID was a response to the needs expressed by developing countries that were looking to Desjardins for better understanding of how the Québec model could contribute to development in their communities.

A pioneer in the development of microfinance around the world, DID today is a leading contributor to the sector.

With the objective of supporting development of the inclusive finance sector, Développement international Desjardins, through it’s subsidiary Gestion FONIDI, offers microfinance institutions a source of capital to be used for financing and investment. DID promotes a partnership approach with other investors in the sector in order to create added value for both investors and the institution being financed
