VOSAVOS is a Latin American marketplace that allows who looks for a reliable worker (a plumber, electrician or cleaning lady) to find one based on the reviews of people he trusts, like his Facebook friends.
For the handyman, VOSAVOS accomplishes 2 key functions: it is the first online affordable channel for advertising his business to get new clients leveraging his good reputation and it provides advice to formalize his business.
The core value behind the idea is simple: especially in emerging markets, people trust only the opinion of their close friends when it is about contracting some stranger for a house job.
