(c) Subject to (d) of this section, the interest rate on a refinancing mortgage loan purchased under (a) of this section is two percent less than the cost to the corporation of the money used to purchase the refinancing mortgage loan, except that if the cost of money

(1) is 10 percent or less, the interest rate is equal to the cost of money; and

(2) is more than 10 percent, the interest rate may not be less than 10 percent.
