For you who were wondering like me:

fin·ca (fngk, fngkä)n.

A rural property, especially a large farm or ranch, in Spanish America.
[American Spanish, from Spanish, real estate, from Old Spanish fincar, to pitch tents, reside, from Vulgar Latin *fgicre, to fasten, from Latin fgere; see dhgw- in Indo-European roots.]

Grandma Babaitsev would call it the "DONKEY" game.

+++++
Also, for extra points:
The Foundation for International Community Assistance (FINCA International) is a non-profit, microfinance organization, founded by John Hatch in 1984. Sometimes referred to as the "World Bank for the Poor" and a "poverty vaccine for the planet".

More or less close enough to 'hacienda' is what I say when asked.

Good idea to post this.
