One FTP Account; Multiple Users, Restrict Individual Access

Is there any way that we can use a FTP account (specifically) an anonymous one, for access to a specific directory that all our clients documents will be located in. The problem with this is that we need to keep all of our clients from gaining access to the documents of the others, while integrating the FTP access behind the scenes so to speak.

So I was wondering, if we could set up our login page to give each client's login information a specific session ID, or something, and the session ID enables access to their folder - since their ID is not that of anyone else' they will not be able to view anything from anyone else.

Clients only need to be able to view documents, and upload documents (not with the same file name to replace, just additional revisions in separate files; and only specific file types)
