Malpighia cocigera - a reasoned guess.

I am not sure of this plant being Malpighia coccigera because
 the said plant has leaves with serrate mergins (spinuous) but
the posted plant seems to have entire leaf margin though some 
leaves in the back drop seems to have serrate
margin.

Malpighia coccigera for sure.
Leaves of this plant are variable.
Even the color of flowers can be white or light pink.
