While Android file managers like Ghost Commander can be used to transfer files and documents to a remote FTP server, the Send With FTP app provides a more elegant way to do this. Once installed, the app adds a dedicated entry to the Android Share menu, so you can push files and documents to an FTP server with a few taps. To configure the app, you need to specify an FTP connection string in the following format:

ftp://username:password@ftpserver/path/to/dir/

Replace username and password with the actual FTP credentials and ftpserver/path/to/dir/ with the IP address or domain name of the FTP server followed by the path to the destination directory. That's all there is to it. Send to FTP is available through both F-Droid and Google Play Store.
