It’s a very advantageous proposal.

La proposition can mean either proposition or proposal. But don’t get all excited here. No one’s getting married!

It usually refers to a business matter, and can even mean suggestion, because that’s also a way of proposing an idea.

But the really interesting word here is intéressant, or intéressante to go with une proposition. Yes, it does mean interesting, but it also means advantageous. That is, the proposal is in your interests. It is interesting to you because it attracts your attention, and it does that because it offers you an advantage.
