How do you become a medical transcriber?

I am certified Medical Assistant. I am from Bangladesh (South Asia). I have been working in an international organization for more than 4 years. Now, i would like to increase my income. Because my current salary is not sufficient for me. So, I decided that I will be working as a medical transcriptionist remotely. I am fluent in English speaking, I know Basic terms of medical terminology and My typing speed is 60 words per minute. I wanna know, is it possible for me to become a medical transcriptionist. My target is to get a job by 5$ per hour. I can work 4-6 hours per day as I am finding a part time job. Please let me know details.
