    Section 7(m)(3)(D) of the Small Business Act (15 U.S.C. 
636(m)(3)(D)) is amended to read as follows:
                    ``(D)(i) In <<NOTE: Regulations.>> general.--The 
                Administrator shall, by regulation, require each 
                intermediary to establish a loan loss reserve fund, and 
                to maintain such reserve fund until all obligations owed 
                to the Administration under this subsection are repaid.
                    ``(ii) Level of loan loss reserve fund.--
                          ``(I) In general.--Subject to subclause (III), 
                      the Administrator shall require the loan loss 
                      reserve fund of an intermediary to be maintained 
                      at a level equal to 15 percent of the outstanding 
                      balance of the notes receivable owed to the 
                      intermediary.
                          ``(II) Review of loan loss reserve.--After the 
                      initial 5 years of an intermediary's participation 
                      in the program authorized by this subsection, the 
                      Administrator shall, at the request of the 
                      intermediary, conduct a review of the annual loss 
                      rate of the intermediary. Any intermediary in 
                      operation under this subsection prior to October 
                      1, 1994, that requests a reduction in its loan 
                      loss reserve shall be reviewed based on the most 
                      recent 5-year period preceding the request.
                          ``(III) Reduction of loan loss reserve.--
                      Subject to the requirements of clause IV, the 
                      Administrator may reduce the annual loan loss 
                      reserve requirement of an intermediary to reflect 
                      the actual average loan loss rate for the 
                      intermediary during the preceding 5-year period, 
                      except that in no case shall the loan loss reserve 
                      be reduced to less than 10 percent of the 
                      outstanding balance of the notes receivable owed 
                      to the intermediary.
                          ``(IV) Requirements.--The Administrator may 
                      reduce the annual loan loss reserve requirement of 
                      an intermediary only if the intermediary 
                      demonstrates to the satisfaction of the 
                      Administrator that--
                                    ``(aa) the average annual loss rate 
                                for the intermediary during the 
                                preceding 5-year period is less than 15 
                                percent; and
                                    ``(bb) that no other factors exist 
                                that may impair the ability of the 
                                intermediary to repay all obligations 
                                owed to the Administration under this 
                                subsection.''.
