¿A ustedes les faltaba algo?

I'm supposed to answer in Spanish. It's basically asking me if I "lack" anything...? So could I answer like this... "A menudo nos faltaba dinero." Any objections? Am I completely off'

It sounds more like a rhetorical question or a statement. Like someone is trying to guess or pinpoint at something, 'you guys were missing something', but don't know what it is. In Spanish it is more common to ask ¿Qué les faltó a ustedes? or ¿Qué les faltaba a ustedes?

Well it's not asking you alone but you and others. Also I may be wrong but I think it should be el dinero.
