Findings of the study for government support mean score which is (M=2.70, SP=1.22), while for satisfaction the mean score (M=4.01, SP=0.94) social influence mean score (M=3.73, SP=0.74) and motivation mean score (M=4.08, SP=0.93). Independent sample t-test was used to see the gender difference between each variable and results of the analysis showed satisfaction, social influence and motivation (p >0.05) explaining that there was no significant difference between men and women. To see the relationship between government support, satisfaction and social influence on the level of motivation, correlation analysis was used and the results showed that satisfaction has a high positive relationship with value (r=0.877**, p=0.000).
