Learn English – What’s a good way to describe “everything”, when that “everything” is very little


I thought about describing it this way:

…which led to his loss of the little of everything he had.

It doesn't sound very nice, and it also sounds like I'm saying that the loss was a "little of everything."

Is there a better way to describe this?

I'd just remove the "of everything" and possibly change the "his" to a "the"

...which led to the loss of the little he had.
