It is simple Dave !!

Go to site content of the site --> Add an app--> Document library.

For creating folders, open your library click Files --> New Folder

(Repeat above process twice)

Then for permissions -->Select the folder -->Share--> Edit-->Advanced-->(Break inheritance if showing)Grant Permissions. Done

    certainly it will be helpful. But you should also mention about Breaking the inheritence. bcoz this is how Dave is expecting!

If there more users you could create groups with separate permission and then open the document library => Document Library Settings => Permission For the Document Library => then assign the created group or The User's those how need the access on assigning time there is an option permission you can add the user with desired permission .
