    Does the gerund clause 'finding money' indicate passive meaning?

    'It wasn't easy Finding the money.'



    1.in The gerund clause above sentence, Does it have a passive meaning? like,'money being found'

    2.Can I replace 'money being found' instead of 'finding money' (like, It wasn't easy money being found)
