I will tell you 2 cost-effective ways to do this and the charges will be just a fraction of what you are going to earn from the tasks.
1. Call through your mobile operator: Almost all mobile operators provide a discounted rate for calls to USA numbers.
For example: From India If you are using Jio, it will just cost you Rs 0.5/minute which is very cheap. This means you will be able to talk for an hour with just Rs 30 ($0.4)
2. Use Skype to make international calls: Skype also provides cheaper rates to call USA numbers. The rates will vary from country to country.
But it is not going to cost you more than $2 for completing the entire task. You can check their plans out by visiting their site.
