     4    § 217. Linked loans. 1. Linked loans shall be made by lenders pursuant
     5  to  the  program only to eligible businesses in connection with eligible
     6  projects. A linked loan shall be limited to  a  maximum  amount  of  two
     7  million  dollars.  An eligible business may receive more than one linked
     8  loan. During the life of the linked loan program, the  total  amount  of
     9  money  that a business can borrow from the linked program is two million
    10  dollars. The credit decision for making a  linked  loan  shall  be  made

    12  loan,  the  linked  deposit  relating  to the linked loan shall be for a
    13  period of not more than four years.
    14    2. A linked deposit may be extended for an additional  period  of  not

    18  shall not result in an increase  of  the  maximum  loan  amount  of  two
