Subject to rules and regulations of the administrator, credit unions may make loans to such credit union services organization, except that any such investment in or loans to such credit union services organization shall not exceed, in the aggregate, 2% of the credit union's shares, undivided earnings and reserves. "Credit union services organization" means an organization established to provide operational and financial services primarily to credit unions.
