We report the study of ISOGAL fields in the outer galactic bulge. We have combined 7 and 15 μm ISOCAM observations with DENIS IJKs near-infrared data to determine the nature of the sources and the interstellar extinction. Most of the ISOGAL sources show evolution of mass-loss rates in the range 10-8 to 10-6 M⊙/year. Most of the detected sources are red giants above the RGB tip; a few of them show an excess in and J - Ks- colors. These sources are detected as AGB stars with large mass-loss rates.
