一本萬利 in Traditional characters (as in your image) or 一本万利 in Simplified Chinese, the writing goes from top right to bottom left.

The expression means "small capital, huge gain/profit".


Yeah, gf agrees 一本万利

一 = 1 本=本钱=starting money 万= a lot 利 = gain

If you believe that, you will believe anything! Money for nothing!
