I don't know this specific machine but when I look at a picture of it, I can see part of the bobbin winding gear. There is a small pair of wheels mounted on the front of the machine, on the bottom to the far right side.
It is the tension mechanism for bobbin thread. Is there some type of lever or something on the side of the machine that lifts out, or maybe on the top or the back of the machine ? Has to be there so somewhere, they don't usually hide them.

Once you find that, you put a spool of thread on the spindle, run the thread down and slip it under that little wheel so it's caught between the two of them.. then to the bobbin itself, and thread it through the smallest hole, from inside to outside.

Then pull the hand wheel out, or there may be a smaller dial in the centre of the handwheel that pulls out. This disengages the clutch so the needle won't go up/down.

Hold onto the thread from the bobbin so it can't snap back and tangle, start the motor, let it run at medium speed until either the bobbin is full or it stops winding on its own.

I can't find an image of the sides or back of the machine you have, but that little tension wheel at the bottom right is certainly for the bobbin thread tension, many machines have similar setups.

Have a look for something that you'd slip the bobbin itself onto, and should be good to go. Push the wheel back in when done to reengage the clutch. There might also be a secondary thread spindle to hold thread for the bobbin.. I can't see that in pics either, but if not, put the spool on the usual spindle you use when stitching.
