Morocco is a country rich with culture and history that dates back to some of the earliest civilizations in the world.
Morocco’s culture and own background was never affected by the French occupation of the country, which is an amazing thing considering that the French left Morocco in 1956 (Guerard 478).
Although the colonization of Morocco was peaceful for the most part, it was obvious that the Sultan and the people of Morocco resented the French coming into their land and trying to shove their western culture down the throats of the natives.

By 3,000 BC, Morocco was inhabited by the Imazighen (known as Berbers), and around 1100 BC, the sea-faring Phoenicians from present-day Lebanon began to establish trading posts in Morocco, exposing the country to their Punic culture.
After the Berber population was largely converted, Idriss, a descendant of the Prophet Mohammed, escaped to Morocco and was proclaimed Imam by a Berber leader in Volubilis.
After a conference in Madrid in 1881, Morocco was forced to extend the status of “most favored nation,” until then limited to the British and the French, to eleven other countries, including the U.S. On March 30, 1912, Moulay Abdelhafid signed the Protectorate Treaty, ceding the government of the country to France and Spain.

A brief visit to Morocco revealed that it is fertile ground for the development of microfinance, with dense urban markets for starting programs and reaching scale, a culture that supports group solidarity and good loan repayment, and the human resources needed to build strong microfinance institutions.
Looking at MicroStart Morocco as it starts its third year, it is possible to second-guess the choices made at the beginning, observing that while all the organizations have benefited from their participation, some of have limited potential to become sound microfinance providers or to profit fully from the technical assistance.
It was chosen largely because there were few alternatives in Morocco at the time, and because the founders, though volunteers and lacking in business background, were dynamic leaders with a will to build their organization and a very positive attitude toward working with SCF and DIS.

Indeed, Morocco emphatically proposes the holding of a referendum for the self-determination of the Saharan population, but the holding of a referendum does not mean in any way that Morocco lays a claim to its historical rights and legal titles.
In this affair, Morocco has always sought, through peaceful means, to reach a settlement by requesting Spain to start appropriate negotiations and by referring the case to different international organization.
Therefore, the retrocession of the Sahara to Morocco is in conformity with the historical and legal titles of Morocco and satisfies international legality through its respect of the UN Resolutions, the Madrid Agreement and the population's wishes.
