Rabat - On September 2013, Morocco has adopted a new asylum policy that allows for the regularisation of refugees who were recognised under UNHCR’s mandate and provides them with a Moroccan refugee card and a residence permit. Within this context, Gloria, an Ivorian refugee, got her Moroccan residence permit and hoped for a better integration into a society where she already managed to build a life of her own. Gloria’s passion about hair dressing motivated her to establish a small hairdressing salon with the help of UNHCR and one of its implementing partners in Morocco, the Association Marocaine d’Appui à la Promotion de la Petite Entreprise (AMAPPE). With an unshaken hope and a strong determination, Gloria succeeded not only at having a successful business, but also at sharing her skills with a Moroccan trainee who was interested in learning what Gloria had to teach.
