In this paper financial frictions are represented by agents heterogeneity. Presence of savers and borrowers permits to analyse financial frictions in a simple and tractable framework. Different types of borrowers create an effect of costly state verification models. Comparatively to these standard CSV framework different types of shocks are modelled, such as expected increase in the income of borrowers or change in the distribution of borrowers quality. Modellin these effects is hard in representative agent framework and such shocks were not analysed in CSV framework before.
