The category description is already displayed in the category view page.
You just need to move elements around.
The template you need to modify is this:
app/design/frontend/{package}/{theme}/template/catalog/category/view.phtml.
take this code:

<?php if($_description=$this->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription()): ?>
    <div class="category-description std">
        <?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?>
    </div>
<?php endif; ?>

and move it at the bottom of the file. That's it.

hi you can description of category at any position of product by using registry variable

if(Mage::registry('current_category')){
<?php 
$_helper=Mage::helper('catalog/output');
$_category = Mage::registry('current_category');
if($_description=(Mage::registry('current_category')->getDescription()): ?>
<div class="category-description std">
<?php echo $_helper->categoryAttribute($_category, $_description, 'description') ?>
</div>
<?php endif; ?>

}

You can use this code in your app/design/frontend/YOURTHEME/default/template/catalog/product/list.phtml at the bottom

echo Mage::getModel('catalog/layer')->getCurrentCategory()->getDescription();

What do you expect exactly...Please be clear in your question.

Go to admin system->configuration->developer and change currentcofigurationscopre option and then in Debug tag Template Path Hints,Add Block Names to Hints' toyes` and save it.

Then see the block and template location of your layout and do what ever you want in the file.(by this way you can find the file location)
