Popular products for my country

Hi PH community. I've been thinking about a missing feature on PH lately, that I call (in my mind) contextual products, or regional products, and I would like to share it with you and understand what you think about it πŸ˜…. There are lots of popular software products in the context of a country, but useless for someone building products outside that country. For example, here in MΓ©xico, we have: - Facturama (https://facturama.mx/) and API-first invoicing system - Albo (https://www.albo.mx/) for online-only banking - YoTePresto.com for microloans - Handy (https://handy.la), a sales force automation tool (my startup) - etc. I'd like to hunt those products here in Product Hunt but I believe they would be irrelevant and invisible because they would not be popular in the context of the whole world, or the US. They are interesting only to us, πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ Mexicans, or people trying to build products in, or for Mexico. These products not necessarily provide a global innovation, but they bring innovation that has been implemented outside our country, into our own hands. They bring value previously inaccesible to us. I want to curate a list like that, for Mexico, and, as much as I would love to do it here in PH, I think it would be useless πŸ˜…. I can think of 20+ products, without doing any further research. I'm willing to create a product to achieve this, but it would also be interesting to know if it's something on PHs roadmap, sounds totally aligned to what PH does and the point is to make this list visible to lots of people, so doing it under PH's umbrella would be better. This is probably something folks from other countries would also like to do. Having a way to showcase contextual/location-based products on PH would be awesome! I believe it's an important missing feature on PH. What do you think?

The idea is interesting. I definitely thinks there is big innovation potential in localised products.
