Your set of equations can be solved exactly for i and i1:

solution =
Solve[{i == v/r2+i1, i1==i1(r1+r2)/r2+a/r2 Log[i1/io+1]-v/r2},{i, i1}]

A table of numerical values agrees with those obtained using NSolve:

parameters = {r2 -> 200, r1 -> 0.025, io -> 10^(-9), a -> 0.05};

Table[{v, solution /. parameters}, {v, 1, 1.2, 0.1}]

You can plot the solution v versus i as follows:

ParametricPlot[Evaluate[{i, v} /. solution /. parameters], {v, 1, 2},
AxesLabel -> {i, v}]

(You could just use Plot to visualize i versus v).

Cheers,
Paul
