Check fuel flow into the carb bowl.

99% of the time the carburetor needs to be removed, cleaned with carburetor cleaner and rebuilt.
It's the ethanol fuel causing the issues.
Once you get it running see if you can find any where local to buy nonethanol fuel or add an additive to counter act the effects of it.
There's dozens of company's making it.
