If the rims are steel, you need to lower your expectations.
a fresh set of brake shoes will be about all you can do ,
short of replacing the rims with Aluminum ones ,
and given its a $20 bike , so may not even be a cost justifiable task.
replacing cables and housing will be = to the value of the bike,
but if it gets used as transportation , then It will earn it's keep.
