The brakes are mechanical brakes and the brake pedal moves the two brake cable to the rear wheels when the pedal is pushed. Are the cables moving all the way to the rear wheels. If so, you will need to see if adjusting the cables will help. If adjustment of the cables does not work, then the brakes need to be checked. Wheels and brake drums removed and examined.
