The 48-year-old banana exporter, who has never held political office.
The elections were further postponed in October after Hurricane Matthew battered the country, killing hundreds and causing extensive damage.
Moise won a November election redo with 55 percent, vowing to stimulate the economy and create more jobs.
The new president begins his five years in power with an already fragile popularity, since he is at the centre of an unresolved money laundering probe.
Haiti's Central Unit of Financial Intelligence alleges that Moise laundered $5m through suspicious money transfers - charges he denies.
Haiti has been dependant on international aid since a powerful earthquake devastated it in January 2010. Its serious economic problems have been compounded by political instability, violence and corruption.
Despite the challenges Moise faces as the poor Caribbean country's new president, some Haitians are willing to give him a chance.
