I have replaced the brushes, bushes & bendix as well as the solonoid. The car started without problems after the solonoid & brushes was replaced & the had trouble starting thus I replaced the bendix, but now it doesn't even make a sound, we did test for power & there is no problem with the supply of power to the starter. What could be the problem?

Being started that many times per day, chances are that bushings are worn as are all the internal components. You could rebuild it but to do that correctly likely the parts would cost you more than a completely rebuilt unit. A good rebuild includes new end bushings, brushes, solenoid and bendix drive. The only original parts should be the housing, field coils and armature. The symptoms you posted sound more like a worn brush or solenoid internal contact. When testing voltages, your radio and lights are not a really good indicator of battery condition or charging system operation. Always use a good volt or multi-meter to do testing.
If the starter wont turn...Id check / replace starter solonoid.
If the starter turns but doesn't engage the flywheel...I'd check / replace the bendix.
If starter checks good and bendix is good...I'd look at the teeth on the flywheel.
You need to replace the starter solenoid that is on the starter it'selfWhile your at it remove the rear cover and then the dust cover from the brush holder and see if you should be replaceing the brushes as well.They should be about a half in long but won't need replaceind unti they're down to 1/8".
Lights dimming a good clue, that means that there is power going to the solonoid but starter moter wont turn. Check all battery connections and starter connections Make sure battery has enough power to turn starter or try jumper cablea.
Sometimes the starter gets jambed up due to poor lube on the bendix. try hitting the housing with a hammer. You can take the starter out and bench rebuild or just replace it its not a hard job,
