Kazi,

 

On Upwork they are called clients.  Another platform calls them buyers.  Upwork doesn't list the client's name.  If the client decides to interview you, you will see his/her name and/or the company name.  

 

If you're wondering how to address the client, I just write: "Hi"

Hi Robin H,
Is that suitable to send poroposal without mention the client name?

I never use the name. And I get hired.

 

I don’t even say “hi.”

I write "Hi" to be respectful as I consider the proposal an introduction.  Of course, it's not a mandate by any means.  

 

"Sir/Madam" is a bit too formal in the US.
