Curly joins in George and Lennie's dream of the perfect little farm for two general reasons: what he offers and what he lacks.

He offers money that he can contribute to the purchase.

He lacks a whole and healthy body that would allow him to fully earn his place (and his peers' respect) on the ranch, and so lacks a place to call his own or fit in. Because of these things, he wants to come with them.
