I've been studying the source of a plugin which calls the following function to display an image inside of a user's profile (BuddyPress). My aim is to call the exact same function to do the same thing (display an image) BUT inside of the Member's Loop.

require ( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/includes/buddypress-verified-profile.php' );

function bp_show_verified_badge() { 
  global $bp;

    $is_verified = get_user_meta($bp->displayed_user->id, 'bp-profile-verified', true);

    $file = dirname(__FILE__) . '/buddypress-verified.php';
    $plugin_url = plugin_dir_url($file);

    if ( $is_verified['profile'] == 'yes' ):
            <?php if (  $is_verified['image'] == null ): ?>
            <span id="bp-verified"><img src="<?php echo $plugin_url; ?>/images/1.png">
            <?php else : ?>
                <span id="bp-verified"><img src="<?php echo $plugin_url; ?>/images/<?php echo $is_verified['image'] ?>.png">
            <?php endif ; ?>

            <?php if (  $is_verified['text'] == null ): ?>
                <span class="v-text"><?php _e('Verified User', 'bp-verified'); ?></span></span>
            <?php else : ?>
                <span class="v-text"><?php echo $is_verified['text'] ?></span></span>
            <?php endif ; ?>

add_action( 'bp_before_member_header_meta', 'bp_show_verified_badge' );
add_action( 'bp_members_directory_item', 'bp_show_verified_badge' );

function bp_verified_insert_head() {

What is the right way to use this function to output the image in the members loop?

Use BuddyPress native functions, like bp_get_user_meta(). I'm pretty sure that this plugin saves its infor in wp_usermeta table, so it can be accessible via that function. You just need to see how that field is called.

if ( bp_has_members() ) {
    while ( bp_members() ) {
        $user_avatar = bp_get_user_meta( bp_get_member_user_id(), 'avatar', true );
        // now output this image as you wish and depending on the image path/value
        echo '<img src="'.$user_avatar'" alt="" />
