SFTP from one server to another with password

Is there a possibility to sftp a file from one AIX server to another AIX server with password? I do not want to use public or private key option as we would have required privileges for creating the keys. So Please provide the needful with a sample script.

Thanks in Advance,
Vijayakumar S G
