I am still very new to Python, so I cannot really help with code so
much. However, to solve the problem, it is important to understand what
an sftp server is - it is simply an SSH server.

So, all that is needed is to use a Python SSH module (seems paramiko is
considered the best). Alternatively, there is also pysftp.

With this background info, I hope your friend can do it.
