these U-frame folders were so common that they are like beach cruisers theres plenty of them made cheap that makes them not so desirable but at $25 its a bargain.

almost all major industrial country made them at one time during the 70s up to late 80s some are european made in italy, spain, netherlands, austria, romania, etc and then some made in the far east Taiwan, china etc even brazil made those kinds

but im guessing by the looks of the pedals, the QR lever, stem , possible aluminum or stainless steel fenders[no rust that i could see from here] and if it comes with a Sturmey-Archer 3 speed hub it could be european made
if you buy it find out who makes the seat and the light/gen set it will at least tell you which continent it came from theres a possibilty its made by bianchi or some italian manufacturer

Hyda bike Italian made bike with generator lights similar to the one for sale but this one is a single speed

It was too hard to search for your original thread; so you created another?
