Hello! :D
What does it mean this sentence?

" It would be just enough to pay back the money he owed and have a little left over."

Thank you so much!! :)

    "It" is clearly a sum of money. This sum of money is a little bigger than the size of his debt - if he paid off his debt, he would still have a little money in his hand: "le quedaría algo de dinero".

    NB "What does it mean this sentence?" is incorrect. "What does this sentence mean?" is correct.
