I've found how to patch shebang staying inside trivial-build-system.
There is 'patch-shebang' procedure in (guix build utils) module, so all
is needed is to call it with the proper path (containing bash or another
shell you use).  So the following lines should be added:

   (gnu packages bash)

Add inside 'let':
                  (bash-bin (string-append (assoc-ref %build-inputs "bash")

>            (mkdir-p bin-dir)

             (patch-shebang bin-file (list bash-bin))

>            (chmod bin-file #o555)))))

      (inputs `(("bash" ,bash)))
