The purpose of this study is to gather information about specific opportunities and challenges for returnees who wish to apply for a microcredit in five target countries: The Islamic Republic of Iran, Mongolia, the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Republic of Senegal and the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. These countries were chosen because of: (a) their high number of voluntary returns under AVRR programmes from Switzerland; (b) their high relevance to Switzerland, which aims to promote voluntary returns to these countries; or (c) reported difficulties to start a solid business with the granted amount.
