At the moment, this scenario isn't possible. 

Users can access the SFTP Account by Username/Password or through SSH access (Public/Private keys) but once the user is authenticted into the SFTP Account, there is no further restriction possible based on individual folders.

This would be considered an enhancement request. Please find information on how to submit an enhancement request at the KBA 2090228.
