Who is Jovenelle Moise
Jovenelle Moise came to politics from business. In the 1990s, he and his wife, after moving from the Haitian capital to Port de Pays, decided to go in for bananas.
Moise invested the money he earned from bananas in other business projects. In 2015, he agreed to an offer by then Haitian President Michel Marteilly to enter politics.
Jovenel Moise became President of Haiti on 7 February 2017. He won 55.7% of the vote in the elections, while his rival Jude Célestin received 19.5% of the vote.
