It looks way more like a Cissus. Cissus striata.?

My first guess was a variety of Cissus but then I noticed that Joe's plant has 5 leaflets. I used to have Cissus adenopoda which had hairy stems and leaves but they had 3 leaflets. Perhaps there are some varieties of Cissus with 5 leaflets?

Hi everyone, thanks so much for the replies. The friend that gave me the plant in the first place has a much better version of the plant (it is doing very well) that I will take a picture of and upload! To answer some questions, it doesn't have thorns, and it's leaves do have very fine hairs on them. For some reason, I think it may be the climate/weather where I live that is causing it to deteriorate. There's not much sun, just lots of cloud and rain which I think may be contributing to it losing most leaves.

I think this is what it is! I looked it up and it does look extremely similar :)
