Question about this sentence read in St. Exupery.

'Dans ce pays elles n'en finissent pas de rendre leur or.'
I encounter this usage often in reading but I don't know what rule requires the 'en'. It seems to me that the sentence would make sense without it.

    I have often wondered about the same thing, but there is a grammatical rule about its usage. Here is the site about using 'en'
