Using Odoo 8.0, you can setup your system as 'Manage multiple locations and warehouses' from the settings->Configuration->Warehouse

From the Warehouse->Traceability->Stock Moves menu, open the 'Stock Moves' screen. When you need to give a user some product, 

then create a stock move with 'Source Location' is warehouse where the product is located in and the destination Location be the "Partner Locations/Customers"

When you need to return the product back from the user, create a stock move with source location is 'Partner Locations/Customers' and the destination is the 

warehouse you need to put the product back in. You can put in the 'Destination Address' the user that took the product
