Wang Lung didn't want to be put in a position where others would ask to borrow money from him.

"But Wang Lung and his wife were not frequent at visiting. There was no house in the village of small scattered houses, of which theirs was half a dozen, which was so filled with warmth and plenty as their own , and Wang Lung felt that if he became too intimate with the others there would be borrowing."
